National Climate Change Learning Strategy

Kenya has made great strides in responding to climate change with robust laws and regulatory frameworks including policies and strategies at both national and county levels. Education, training, public awareness and capacity development are highlighted as critical enablers in climate change response actions and realization of a low carbon emission resilient development pathway for Kenya.

The capacity development challenges associated with climate change require a systematic, long term and programmatic effort to address. Kenya’s National Climate Change Learning Strategy is a powerful tool to contribute to addressing these capacity challenges and support implementation of the Updated   Nationally Determined Contributions 2020 (NDCs) and National Adaptation Plan 2015 – 2030 (NAP), as well as other relevant national and global climate action committments. Given the linkages between climate change and development, the Learning Strategy will also contribute to the achievement of SDGs.

The Learning Strategy provides a systematic, country driven, coordinated approach to climate change learning by fostering multi-stakeholder, cross sectoral collaboration to support learning needs and capacity development priorities and strengthen national institutions to deliver climate change learning as part of a  broader, sustainable way to enhance an engendered human resource base to address climate change. The ten-year National Climate Change Learning Strategy (2021 – 2031) will be implemented through short, medium and long term strategic actions. 

The vision for Kenya’s National Climate Change Strategy is to have: “A citizenry equipped with relevant knowledge and skills provided by national education and training institutions to drive Kenya’s economy to a low-emissions, carbon resilient development pathway in a sustainable manner.”
