Global Climate Finance Partnership Impacts Kenyan Farmers

http://l.caast-net-plus.org/4J

The Isiolo country climate fund is helping Kenyan farmers and their livestock adapt to climate change, SciDev.Net has reported in an article posted by its Sub-Saharan Africa desk. The project is a partnership of various global organisations, including the UK Department for International Development, Care International and Kenya Meteorological Services, among others. “The project, which is implemented by Kenya’s National Drought Management Authority (NDMA), is an example of an investment called the global climate finance — a complex arrangement whereby donors help recipient countries to set up national climate change funds,” the article states. “The aim is to coordinate and align donor interests with national priorities.” [Image credit: Flickr, World Bank Photo Collection]
