Joint Program to Support Low Carbon Climate Resilient Development for Poverty Reduction in Kenya

The UNDP Kenya Country Office, in collaboration with the UNDP-UNEP Poverty Environment Initiative,UNEP, UN-HABITAT, UN-ILO, UNIDO and UNESCO are working with the Government of Kenya under a Joint Climate Change Project titled ‘Support to Low Carbon Climate Resilient Development for Poverty Reduction in Kenya’. This project was designed in recognition of the impacts of climate change across all the key sectors in Kenya, because of its geography and reliance on rain-fed agriculture, pastoral livestock production systems and tourism which are all heavily dependent on nature. By combining the skills and resources of UN Agencies active across the country and by jointly addressing key development issues alongside others, the UN Agencies are jointly working to complement the efforts of Government, civil society, the private sector and other development partners, using available resources as judiciously as possible and reinforcing the leadership of other actors through technical support and modest financial contributions.
