Kenya has pioneered a climate change governance mechanism to increase finance for local climate action
The Kenyan County Climate Change Fund (CCCF) consists of climate legislation enacted by county governments, through the Climate Change Planning Committee (which includes county government officers, technical representatives from government agencies and civil society representatives), and a county-controlled fund (sourced from local, national and international finance streams) that finances climate projects identified and prioritised by local communities. Originally designed by a multi-stakeholder coalition with the objectives of increasing capacity for local development planning and channelling climate finance to some of Kenya’s most vulnerable regions, the CCCF evolved to encompass mitigation measures and effectively influenced national climate policy. The CCCF mechanism is well established and endorsed by the national government, as a key component in the National Climate Action Plan (2018-2022), and provides a comprehensive national planning and financing framework that strengthens capacity, through provision of planning tools and downscaled climate information, and channels finance to community-driven climate action priorities.
