Climate Financing in Kenya, How Far are We

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is a new global fund created to support the efforts of developing countries to respond to the impacts of climate change. GCF helps developing countries limit or reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to climate change. It seeks to promote a paradigm shift to low-emission and climate-resilient development, taking into account the needs of countries that are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts. The fund is for both mitigation and adaptation and promotes investment.
When the Paris Agreement entered into force on 4 November 2016, the Green Climate Fund was given an important role in serving the agreement and supporting the goal of keeping climate change well below 2 Degrees Celsius.

Farming in the Face of Climate Change

Farmers have had to adapt to the conditions imposed on them by climate of their region since the inception of agriculture, but recent human -induced climate change is throwing them some unexpected curve balls. Extreme heat, floods, drought, hail and windstorm are some of the direct effects. In addition, there are changes in weed species and distribution, and pest and dieases pressure, on top of potenetially depleted soils and water stress.

Fortunately, there are many practices that farmers can adopt and change that can be made to our agricultureal production system to make the system more resilient to our changing climate.
