This report is one of a series of brief country studies that have been commissioned by the OECD/DAC and the African Development bank (AfDB) as part of a regional study on climate change finance. The work seeks to strengthen the management of funding for climate change using the framework of the internationally agreed Aid Effectiveness principles. It provides a rapid assessment of Kenya’s existing mechanisms for climate change financing in the light of such principles. The analysis is based upon a review of literature and data, supported by a number of stakeholder interviews in country, with government officials, donors, civil society and the private sector. This was, however, a rapid exercise, and is not a comprehensive study. It can only begin to raise key issues and is meant to be a prompt for discussion. As well as setting out the current position, it identifies challenges and makes recommendations.
