Climate Change

We support efforts to cope with and take advantage of the opportunities presented by climate change. We promote practical actions to manage risks, reduce vulnerabilities and strengthen resilience against the impacts of climate change.

We support efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by suing new technologies, improving energy efficiency and sequestration of carbon dioxide. We promote initiatives such as geothermal and wind power, green schools programmes, rapid transport systems, REDD+ projects, improved cook stoves among others that contribute to reduction in GHG emissions.We back efforts to embrace and adopt energy efficiency measures, clean energy sources, and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants by transforming operations to use renewable energy sources.

We support decisions and investments to address climate change based on reliable information and consistent data. We build capacities to enable individuals, organizations and businesses to understand climate change and contribute to development and implementation of strategies and efforts to address challenges and benefit from opportunities associated with climate change.We back efforts that promote public access to information through trainings, knowledge portals, briefing notes, online platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn etc.

Our environmental governance programme focusses on the rules, practices, policies and institutional frameworks that shape how individuals, organizations and businesses interact with the environment. We focus on three key areas:
  • 1.Improving coherence and leveraging synergies, where we aim to promote harmony and mutual work relations

  • 2.Strengthening laws and institutions, where we build capacities to develop, implement and enforce laws and policies that contribute to the realization of sustainable development goals.

  • 3.Mainstreaming environment into growth and development, where we support mainstreaming of (include, integrate) environmental aspects and safeguards into planning and operations.

In our work to keep the environment clean, healthy and secure, we focus on bridging the gap between research-policy and practice. We also promote availability and access to environmental information.

We support technology development, transfer and usage to avoid the adverse impacts of climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We back and engage in such efforts as needs assessments, access to funding for entrepreneurs and SMEs, performance and benefit measurements and inventory processes.
