The Civil Society Organisations have called for governments,Corporations Financers and Civil society Organisations to join hands in ongoing process of Climate Action.
Climate Action is an ongoing process not an event which requires extraordinary collaboration.
Africa is planning to host 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference will begin on 6th November.
Speaking during CSO’S stakeholders validation meeting in Nairobi , Mr. Norbert Nyandire, Head at Sustainable Environment Devolution Watch (SEDW)said “We need an extra efforts from developed countries because its not easy to achieve past goals if collaboration are not done well,”
However, there’s less of transparency and accountability facing many organisations in Kenya due to management of funds and loans received from the Green Climate Fund within our organisations.
In 2014,there’s a $10 million given to Kenya which brought about mismanagement of funds.
Climate action funds to the counties are yet to be disbursed because counties are still working on policies to processthe allocatedfunds.
The funds are used to support community organisations under climate action plan.
“Climate adaptation finance is the biggest obstacles against climate actions in Kenya as wells aa African nations,”according to Ms Sheila Anyango Director Youth Senate organisation from Migori County.
