CLIMATE FINANCE FLOWS IN KENYA
Funding into Kenya comes from multilateral sources (the International Development Association, World Bank, European Union, African Development Bank, and the UN Environment Programme) and bilateral once (the French Development Agency, UK Department for International Development, Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, Japan International Co-operation Agency, Nordic Development Fund, and the governments of China, Denmark, Finland, Spain and the Netherlands).
Funding is also channelled directly from international actors to national ones, such as from the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety through the Transparency International secretariat to the national chapter in Kenya.
Efforts to co-ordinate international climate change financing are currently conducted through the Development Partners’ Working Group and informal discussions between donors. External funding to the Ministry of Energy is coordinated by the Energy Sector Working Group chaired by the ministry itself.
It is in the context of this working group that donors share their funding plans in this sector. Other sector working group use the same model/approach.
