FILM: Switching on climate finance in Kenya
Africa accounts for many of the fastest growing economies in the world, but with this growth comes new challenges including those posed by climate change. Kenya has identified investment in energy as critical to its growth, but without combined investments from both the public and private sector, this will not be achieved in a way that is sustainable and compatible with the climate.
Today Kenya is looking to global climate finance to help access greener energy opportunities that are both low carbon and resilient. This will contribute to sustainable development and will help the East African country address real issues on the ground – the need for greater access to energy for more Kenyans.
Through interviews with Government, the private sector and researchers, this CDKN production looks at how Kenya is dealing with the challenge of generating more electricity in a way that does not make it part of the climate change problem.
