The UNDP Kenya Country Office, in collaboration with UNDP-UNEP Poverty Environment Initiative, UNEP, UN-HABITAT, ILO, UNIDO and UNESCO have established a Joint Climate Change Programme ‘Support to Low Carbon Climate Resilient Development for Poverty Reduction in Kenya’. This Joint Programme (JP) seeks to help Kenya transition to a low carbon climate resilient development pathway reducing the country's vulnerability to climate risk and improving livelihoods while contributing towards the global efforts to reduce green-house gases emissions.
The JP was jointly designed with the Government of Kenya, which recognized the impacts of climate change (CC) on the country’s development; and the inherent risks which would greatly affect the realization of the country’s development blueprint, the Vision 2030. This JP is in line with the recently enacted National Climate Change Action Plan 2013-2017 (NCCAP) which stipulates the need to mainstream CC adaptation and mitigation measures in national and county planning and budgeting processes and in all sectors of the economy as a means to further Kenya’s people-centered development strategy.
To actualize the UN’s commitment of ‘Delivering as One’, aptly captured in the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) under Outcome 3.2. ‘Enhanced environment management for economic growth with equitable access to energy services and response to climate change’ the JP utilizes the specialized niches of the UN agencies to achieve the following:
Overall Budget (USD): 56,546,373
Funded (parallel) (USD): 1,833,332
Pass-through funds (USD): 1,830,243
The JP is designed to support the Government of Kenya develop policies, execute pilots activities, and spur low carbon climate resilient development in 5 main Output Areas:
Output 1: Mainstreaming of pro-poor climate change adaptation and mitigation in Kenya’s national and county planning and budgeting process by UNDP/UNEP
Output 2: Promoting renewables and sustainable biomass production in Kenya by UNDP/UNIDO
Output 3: Output 3: Enhancing Sustainability and Employment Creation in the Building Construction Industry by ILO/UNEP/UN-Habitat
Output 4: Catalyzing Low Carbon Transport in Kenya by UN-Habitat/UNEP
Output 5: Addressing illegal wildlife trade (UNEP/UNESCO)
This JP is being led by the UNDP Kenya Country Office in collaboration with UNDP-UNEP Poverty Environment Initiative, UNEP, UN-HABITAT, UN-ILO, UNIDO and UNESCO. The lead Government of Kenya Implementing Parttner is the Ministry of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (MEWNR) with some cokllaborations with the Ministry of Devolution and Planning, the National Treasury and some pilot County Governments. The project will also partner with a local NGO, the kenya Renewable Energy Association (KEREA).
Governance and Decision-Making
The JP utilizes the pass-through funding modality, whereby the Participating UN Organizations have appointed UNDP Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office to perform the role of the Administrative Agent (AA) for the Joint Programme. UNDP is the Coordinating UN Agency, while other UN Agencies are in charge of executing their specific Outcome areas, assuming full programmatic and financial accountability for the funds disbursed to it by the Administrative Agent.
The JP is governed by the Programme Steering Committee (PSC), responsible for overseeing programme implementation. The PSC will be chaired by the Government with UN Agencies co-chairing for their respective outputs.
Participating Organizations are required to submit final year-end expenditures by April 30 in the following year; Interim expenditure figures are submitted on a voluntary basis and therefore current year figures are not final until the year-end expenditures have been submitted.
