This stategic policy document includes 8 subcomponents:
Subcomponent 1: Long-term National Low Carbon Climate Resilient Development Pathway facilitated reflection and mainstreaming of climate change aspects in the country’s longterm development planning and budgeting. It identified key elements of the country’s low-carbon and climate resilient growth and worked with the MPND to integrate climate change into the 2013-2017 Medium Term Plan.
Subcomponent 2: Enabling Policy and Regulatory Framework reviewed international, regional and national policy and legislative instruments related to climate change to form the basis for developing a policy and legislative framework to promote coherence, coordination and cooperative governance of climate change issues for Kenya.
Subcomponent 3: Adaptation Analysis and Prioritisation undertook a comprehensive review of all relevant literature to identify and prioritise immediate, medium- and longterm adaptation actions. The proposed actions informed the 2013-2017 Medium Term Plan and National Adaptation Plan.
Subcomponent 4: Mitigation actions examined potential low-carbon development opportunities in the six mitigation sectors set out in Article 4.1 of the UNFCCC: energy; transport; industry; agriculture; forestry; and waste management. The analysis provided the basis for identifying potential internationally and domestically supported NAMAs that would enhance sustainable development. Identifying priority REDD+ activities was also addressed.
Subcomponent 5: The Technology chapter has drawn attention to the barriers affecting the uptake of technologies related to adaptation and mitigations. A national technology needs assessment has been undertaken separately to this action plan.
Subcomponent 6: National Performance and Benefit Measurement developed a national performance and benefit measurement framework for measuring, monitoring, evaluating, verifying and reporting results of mitigation actions, adaptation actions and the synergies between them.
Subcomponent 7: Knowledge Management and Capacity Development designed a knowledge management system to address the sharing of climate change-related knowledge and proposed capacity building measures to address the institutional and technical capacity needs of the various actors.
Subcomponent 8: Finance developed an innovative financial mechanism that includes a climate fund, investment strategy/framework and carbon trading platform to position the country to access finances from various sources.
