Kenya Launches Climate Adaptation Programme
Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources and Regional Development Authorities Professor Judi Wakhungu told a media briefing in Nairobi that the project will counter the growing threat of climate change to the country.
“If nothing is done to protect the vulnerable communities, they will lose their livelihoods,” Wakhungu said. The project has been funded from a 10 million U.S. dollar grant obtained from the Adaptation Fund established under the Kyoto Protocol.
Kenya received the funding because it is a member of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
