Low Emission and Climate Resilient Development (LECRD) Project
The Low Emission and Climate Resilient Development (LECRD) Project, funded by USAID through UNDP, and implemented by The Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources and Regional Development Authorities.
The 3 (three) year project will contribute towards the implementation of the Kenya’s National Climate Change Action Plan (2013- 2017) which has the overarching goal of enhancing low carbon climate resilient development outlined in Kenya’s economic blueprint, Vision 2030.
To support Kenya’s efforts to pursue long-term, transformative development and accelerate sustainable climate resilient economic growth, while slowing the growth of greenhouse gas emissions
To strengthen capacity for low emission development in Kenya
To build national and county institutions’ capacity to better coordinate climate change activities and finances
To enhance decision making for increased resilience to climate change impacts
To promote climate smart technologies and business opportunities
The LECRD Project will have six (6) outcomes namely:
1. Strengthen the national climate change coordination processes; 2. Contribute toward enhancing access to clean and efficient energy systems; 3. Support development of a national sustainable greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory system; 4. Facilitate improved national and county decision making on climate change interventions; 5. Support capacity building of climate knowledge management systems; 6. Contribute towards minimizing the impacts of extreme climate events for improved and resilient
