The Principal Secretary for Environment Mr. Charles Sunkuli has urged African countries to review their development Plans in line with the United Nations global low-carbon and climate resilient development pathway.

He noted that Africa was most vulnerable to the adverse impacts of climate change, and the projected future climate scenarios showed an increasing frequency and intensity of extreme climate events.

The PS urged African countries to interrogate the recent UN Paris climate change landmark agreement on its implications to their respective socio-economic sectors, of Energy, Agriculture, Forestry, Transport, Industry, and Waste Management.

During the landmark Paris Conference of Parties (COP 21) held in December 2015, nations of the world agreed to reduce the levels of Green House Emissions by holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C.

Mr.  Sunkuli was speaking when he opened a climate change meeting for sub-Saharan Africa dubbed, “The Paris Agreement of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 21): Challenges and Opportunities for Africa”, held in Kigali, Rwanda on 10th – 11th February 2016.

The event was convened by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Rule of Law for Sub-Sahara Africa Programme, in cooperation with the Development and Rule of Law Programme (DROP), University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. Representatives from the East African Community’s member States participated.

The Kigali meeting reflected on the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Paris Agreement, and focused on the Africa’s preparedness to achieving the globally agreed objectives of zero-­carbon climate resilient society by mid­century and limiting global warming to below 2°C.

The meeting discussions included the challenges and opportunities arising from the Agreement and how law, politics, finance and related variables can further climate change justice ahead at the regional, national and sub-national levels.

The meeting noted that the Paris Agreement’s impact will depend largely on the implementation of the concrete targets set in the global nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and on the future level of ambitions.

The East Africa Community Countries recommended that members strengthen awareness of the Paris Agreement and its implications for Africa, before the signing/ratification.

The System for Land-based Emissions Estimation in Kenya (SLEEK) program that seeks to measure carbon emissions in the country has picked momentum and is working to establish a databank for use in climate change decisions.

A quarterly meeting for Element Working Groups (EWGs) to report on activities in measuring Land-cover, Soil carbon, Forest carbon, Crop carbon and Climate parameters kicked off in Amboseli to review the program’s progress.

The meeting brought together a number of Element working groups all based at various institutions that handle climate change related issues.

Speaking at the meeting the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) Regional Director, Mr. Jackson Kimani said there was need for automated process for data accessibility.

The meeting reported on updates of EWGs work, reviewed data requirements to run the system and data received so far by the Programme Management Unit (PMU). The team also reported on progress made so far on development of the reporting tool and the Full Land Integration Tool (FLINT).

EWGs are the teams that  are build SLEEK and all the five have set objectives on a 3 months basis and report on achievements, key challenges and possible solutions to the challenges.

SLEEK is a program being delivered by the Government of Kenya through the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and Regional Development Authorities and funded by the Government of Australia. The program is supported by the Clinton Foundation, and aims to develop an emissions estimation system for the land sector in Kenya.

This system allows Kenya to meet its international reporting requirements, and provides crucial information for the government to be able to respond to a range of other developmental challenges. The program will bring together data from across a range of government departments and will use a central integration tool to answer important policy questions. This program will also establish a central data repository and data platform that will avail the data to help support economic, environmental and social development.
