DFID is supporting climate resilience in Kenya in line with the Government’s manifesto commitment to work to prevent climate change and assist the poorest in adapting to it.

We are building resilience by supporting 1 million people to cope with the effects of climate change, and have integrated climate-proofing across the UK’s development work in Kenya. We are enabling private sector investment and innovation in green energy by mobilizing £17 million private sector finance to invest in green technologies, and are supporting the development of policies through which Kenya can fulfil its international climate commitments.
