The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources appreciates the support of development partners in combating the vagaries associated with effects of climate change, Principal Secretary in the State Department of Environment, Mr. Charles Sunkuli has said.

In a speech read on his behalf by the Secretary of Administration in the Ministry, Mr. William Kiprono, during the Low Emission Climate Resilience Development Project’s (LECRD) steering committee meeting, to review the projects progress at the Kyaka hotel, Machakos, Mr. Sunkuli noted that, the project, whose specific objectives is to strengthen capacity for low emission development in Kenya, build national and county institutions capacity to better coordinate climate change activities and climate finances, enhance decision making for increased resilience to climate change impacts and promote climate smart technologies and business opportunities, is on track as per its timelines that is expected to last up to September, 2017.

Noting that, humanity, through its own actions is changing the world’s climate as temperatures are increasing, sea levels are rising and storms are growing, the PS  reiterated that, the project has been reinforcing capacity building of the Climate Knowledge Management System in Kenya.

The Low Emission and Climate Resilient Development (LECRD) project, funded by USAID through UNDP, aims at supporting Kenya’s efforts to pursue long-term, transformative development as well as accelerate sustainable climate resilient economic growth, while slowing the growth of greenhouse gas emissions. The three year project will contribute towards the implementation of the National Climate Change Action Plan (2013- 2017) which has the overarching goal of enhancing low carbon climate resilient development blueprint –Vision 2030.
