Climate Change and Biodiversity

A significant disconnect between people and the environment contributes to climate change and resource loss. Kenya, reliant on natural resource-dependent sectors, has set ambitious climate goals, including a 32% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Circular agriculture, water conservation, and renewable energy are key areas of focus. Public-private partnerships and innovative practices aim to enhance resilience and sustainability.

  • The Disconnection Between People and the Planet

    There is a significant disconnection between people and the planet, leading to rising global temperatures and loss of natural services. Recognizing our role in nature is essential for climate change adaptation and mitigation.

  • Kenya’s Climate Policy Landscape

    Kenya’s economy is highly dependent on natural resources, making it vulnerable to climate change. The country aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 32% by 2030, supported by national strategies and private sector involvement. Public-private partnerships have been crucial in initiatives like tree planting, aiming for a 10% forest cover.

  • Addressing Climate Change and Sustainability

    Efforts include clean energy, water harvesting, waste management, and tree planting. Kenya is adopting technologies to increase agricultural productivity and conserve biodiversity. Circular agriculture aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance food security. The Climate Change Act 2016 supports local solutions and establishes a Climate Change Fund.

  • Food and Agriculture

    Agriculture contributes significantly to Kenya’s GDP and employment. The sector is vital for food security and is adopting circular practices to improve sustainability. Initiatives like those by the Beyond Cultural Limits Foundation promote sustainable livelihoods and climate-smart agricultural practices.

  • Water

    Water scarcity and unpredictable rainfall are major issues. Sustainable Inclusive Business partners with experts to promote sustainable water consumption and technologies.

  • Energy

    Most African countries rely on fossil fuels, but Kenya has made progress in renewable energy, with 85% of its electricity from renewable sources. Emphasizing renewable energy and regenerative models is crucial for a low-carbon future.
