Review of the Implementation of Kenya’s National Adaptation Plan 2015–2030 in the Agriculture Sector

Kenya’s National Adaptation Plan (NAP) 2015–2030—the country’s first NAP—was prepared and submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2016. This first review of the implementation progress of the NAP 2015–2030 examines adaptation activities in the agriculture (crops), livestock, and fisheries sectors. It also identifies successes and challenges in implementing the NAP and sets out recommendations for future evaluations.

A significant number of initiatives are being implemented to deliver on the priority agriculture adaptation actions set out in the NAP 2015–2030. For example, initiatives have been implemented to promote Indigenous Knowledge on crops and promote new food habits. In the livestock sector, adaptation initiatives have helped strengthen land management systems, including improved rangeland management and restoration of degraded lands.

The implementation of the NAP in the agriculture sector has already led to positive outcomes, including increased sector coordination, enhanced organizational capacity, improved knowledge, and enhanced policy influence.
