Africa Adaptation Programme-Kenya (AAP-K) Achievements:

Institutional and Leadership Capacity Building in climate change


  • The main objective of AAP:

    • Steer Kenya towards climate change resilient development by strengthening institutional and systemic capacity and leadership to address climate change risks and opportunities through a national approach to adaptation


Studies supported and completed:

  • Integrated rehabilitation of Lake Naivasha Ecosystem

  • Intervention approaches and related costs towards rehabilitation of Lake Naivasha water catchment

  • Information used in the development of the Water Towers Master Plan

    ii) Gender mainstreaming strategy and guidelines

  • The guidelines shared in the National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP)Development Process

    iii) Climate Risk Assessment in Agriculture, Energy and Water sectors

  • The recommended adaptation actions informing the process of developing the National Adaptation Plan (NAdP) of the NCCAP


Development of the Kenyan Threshold 21 model including capacity building

“A dynamic and quantitative tool for analysing multi-sectoral impacts of climate change, develop institutional and systemic capacity to manage climate change risks and facilitate development of mitigation and adaptation polices”

  • Trained core modelers

  • T21 unit operational in the MPND&V2030

  • Model results informing:

    • National Climate Change Action Plan (Low carbon development pathway and NAdP)

    • The preparation of the Medium Term Plan (2013-2017), which will inform revised Vision 2030 for Kenya


National Climate Change Resource Centre

  • Supported conceptualization and designing of the center

    “A physical one stop shop of Climate Change related information to strengthen collection, dissemination/sharing, use and evaluation of Climate Change information and technologies in the country”

  • Exhibition gallery

  • Multipurpose hall

  • Workshops/training rooms

  • Video/audio conferencing facility

  • Library/reference materials

  • ICT (servers, cyber)

  • Designs have been approved and contractor selected with government having given commitment to construct

  • Government of Kenya has availed funds to construct the NCCRC (US$. 1,301,205)


Compendium of Climate Change Actors in Kenya

“Informing the development of national database of climate change information through the ongoing action plan development process

Shared widely (interest growing in the country to know who is doing what, where for how long,)

  • Printed and to be available online

    AAP website (

  • Provide a knowledge platform of information generated from AAP

  • To run over a transition period of one year

  • To be linked to MEMR/CCS website


Knowledge Management Platform

  • Supported in the ream of the National Climate Change Action Plan

  • Climate Change information and knowledge products

  • Audio, still images, videos

  • Animations

  • Reports - Prediction Reports,

  • Maps - Hazards, Prediction Maps

  • Graphs

  • Research results

  • Best practices from projects; lessons learnt from projects;

  • Climate change documents (laws, policies, regulations, agreements)

  • Links to other climate change-related knowledge sources


Supported the operationalization of the Kenya Climate Change Secretariat based at the MEMR

  • CCS formalised and approved by the government

    National capacity building initiatives (Climate Change Focal Points and Government Relevant Officers)

  • Climate Change Negotiation

  • Community based CC risk screening for adaptation planning

  • Climate Change Modelling

  • Climate change finance and budgeting

    Established climate change units and deployed climate change desk officers

  • Need of clear terms of reference

  • Inclusion of climate change institutional engagement in the Performance Contracts


Enhancing capacity of the DRSRS to

  • periodic cereal forecasts for food security assessment

  • periodic livestock and wildlife carrying capacity survey for food security assessment

    Equipment supplied and methodologies testing being finalised

    Enhancing weather/climate analysis and forecasting skills for improved early warnings and climate change prediction in Kenya

  • Enhance meteorological analysis and forecasting techniques for climate change prediction

  • Upgrade KMD web-based server to enhance data acquisition from all the relevant sources, storage and dissemination

    Equipment supplied


Community based climate change adaptation (Pilot project)

  • Implementation approaches

  • Micro catchment approach

  • Multi-sectoral

  • Community based

  • Integrated approach

  • Participatory monitoring



  • 413 energy saving stoves supplied in schools within 15 ASAL Districts. The stoves were installed on cost-sharing arrangement with the school covering 50% of the cost.

  • WFP has provided tree seedlings to four schools (includes fencing of the facilities). This will ensure wood supply in the future.

    Cost sharing element increase the ownership


  • Micro hydro power

  • Community governance structures simplified the decision making process and improved the ownership of the project by the community

  • Employment of community members improved working relations with the community

  • Cost sharing through partnership with local financial frameworks such as the CDF is important



  • Energy for water security

  • Green charcoal for household energy substitution

  • Important to development sustainable business models that:

  • Enhance community ownership of the CPCs

  • Clearly defined community benefits

  • Provide for sufficient profits for the entrepreneurs

  • If possible the CPC design should take the form of a business park whereby criteria/guidelines are provided
