Climate change is adversely affecting Kenya through increased temperatures, erratic rainfall, and drought. With USAID support, Kenya is developing crucial climate change policies and legislation, such as the Climate Change Policy Frame Work, Climate Change Bill, and the National Climate Change Finance Policy and Budget Codes. In addition, over $13 million private finance will be leveraged through USAID’s Power Africa initiative to support household access to renewable energy and connection to the national grid. USAID has also partnered with scientific organizations to build the capacity of Kenyan institutions to use climate data for improved decision-making.
