Kenya has made great strides in dealing with climate change by coming up with policies and strategies to cushion its people against adverse impacts associated with climate change. It is now among the first nine countries globally to benefit from Adaptation Fund through Direct Access.

The work of NEMA being the NIE for Adaptation fund in supporting a national programme designed to respond to effects of climate change in 14 counties received a major boost with the announcement that the Authority has been accredited by the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund (GCF).
The accreditation allows access to climate change financing programs that will provide many opportunities for Kenya.

Some of the areas in which Kenyans are likely to benefit from through the fund  are: reduction of the effects of climate change (desertification, global warming unpredictable rainfall patterns, storms, floods); sustainable development; promotion of environmentally friendly technologies i.e. agriculture, industries; poverty reduction; greater awareness on climate change; greater involvement of Kenyans in climate change activities; shift towards green economy; raising the Kenyan portfolio in climate financing globally and access to more funds.
