Kenya Mulls Plan to Combat Climate Change in Counties
The Kenya Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat (VDS) has been in talks with stakeholders on how county governments can mainstream climate change responsive strategies especially where key vision 2030 projects are being implemented.
VDS Director General Julius Muia said that the secretariat is seeking to identify ways to boost awareness of the harmful effects of climate change and how the public can extend a hand to building resilience of the country’s poor and those in vulnerable situation.
“Climate change is a cross-cutting development issue and it is crucial that all stakeholders involved in the implementation of Vision 2030 flagship projects work closely to mainstream climate proofing and climate change responsive strategies into development plans,” Muia said in a statement issued in Nairobi.
According to the Climate Change Vulnerability Index for 2015, seven of the ten countries most at risk from climate change are in Africa.
