  • Agricultural investment is a core issue that cannot be separated from land. Similarly the discussion is shaped by climate change. Agriculture is central to food security, unlocking youth entrance to job market. Land is at the core of it, and access is important in production. About 70-80% of income for youth and women is from Agriculture.  Growth 34%. Livelihood depend on agriculture. We need to address the land right and build the nexus of climate change and land. Adaptation and investments and building resilience. This will form our discussion today. [ ....... ]
  • Energy is the key component in the mitigation response to combatting climate change. If dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate is to be avoided this century, a worldwide transition to renewable energy sources needs to take place urgently. The African continent is facing a particularly key moment in itsdevelopment pathway, with a stark choice to be made between either following the same highcarbon path pursued by industrialized countries, or concentrating its growth on low-carbon climate resilient development.

  • Following the adoption and unprecedentedly rapid entry into force of the PA, Parties have less than two years—till December 2018—to translate the political consensus of Paris into tangible steps toward implementation. Negotiators must develop a Paris “rule book” to guide implementation, and the results of their efforts could either underpin actionable outcomes or undermine the objectives of the PA.1 The Paris rule book will be a critical tool to guide Parties in fulfilling their requirements under the Agreement.

  • There is need to mainstream adaptation to climate change into development, planning and sectorial decision making for better and faster response to climate change. Both mitigation of and adaptation to climate change requires actions to be taken in many sectors of society, but so far this is hardly happening. This policy brief suggests possibilities of widening climate change policy by strengthening inter-linkages between climate policies and the climate change act of Kenya. [ ....... ]
  • Climate change remains a major challenge that threatens Kenya’s ability to achieve her vision to become a middle income country. Kenya has made significant policy steps to ensure Kenya emerges climate resilient (Low Emission Climate Resilient Development- USAID). As a core part of resilience building, there mustbe deliberate emphasis to undertake development that safeguards vulnerable ecosystems, which include our water towers, the forests and the ASALs, which forms a majority of Kenya’s geographic landscape, at 80%.

  • This Simplified version of the National Climate Change Act, 2016 was produced as part of the policy advocacy engagement of the Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA), and more specifically, in the contribution in the formulation of the national climate change policies, plans and programmes. It contributes profoundly to the Alliance strategic Plan 2016 – 2020, which seeks to deepen engagement of civil society and other non-state actors in the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in African countries.

  • To implement the Paris climate change agreement at the national level, countries will have to review existing governance frameworks and develop new rules and regulations. This may result in “top-down” legislation that does not reflect the concerns of particularly climate vulnerable groups and communities. Under the umbrella of the African Climate Legislation Initiative (ACLI), The Cameroon Climate Change Working Group (CCCWG), therefore, organised several stakeholder consultation meetings in Cameroon with a view to developing a demand oriented law review and development approach that values the perspectives of affected people and could potentially be applied in different jurisdictions.

  • The implementing guidelines for the Paris Agreement—known as the Paris Rulebook—are essential to operationalize national and international commitments to combat intensifying climate change in a fair and effective manner. The guidelines will create a framework for how countries will implement their climate commitments and bring the Paris Agreement to life. The goal is to enable Parties to communicate, report, review, and strengthen climate action in accordance with their capabilities, and do so in a way that is transparent and accountable to the international community. Clear guidelines will enhance predictability and confidence in the transformation to a low-carbon and climate-resilient world, while enhancing international cooperation and support for countries and communities with limited capacities.
