Kenya is a leading country when it comes to taking action to address climate change. The country has in place a number of national policies to tackle its impacts, and is actively engaged in multiple international initiatives. Since 2018, UN CC:Learn has been working with the Kenyan government and other stakeholders to develop a more strategic approach to climate change learning.

Towards a National Climate Change Learning Strategy

Our work in Kenya, the UN CC:Learn Project to Strengthen Human Resources and Skills to Advance the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) is now underway.

The project is engaging a range of stakeholders and sectors. It is expected to inform and lead to the development of Kenya’s national climate change learning strategy.

Building on a background report, a virtual National Planning Workshop took place on 27 July and 11 August 2020.

Our National Partners

Our work in Kenya is coordinated by the Climate Change Directorate in the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and the Kenya Climate Change Working Group (KCCWG). The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the UN Country Team also provide support.
