Uganda’s LDC-Led LIFE-AR initiative tasked with developing effective and long-term climate adaption interventions and delivering climate finance to local actors on Wednesday paid a courtesy call to H.E Deputy Governor Lucy Mulili during a benchmarking tour of the County.
The team led by Joseph Epitu, commissioner-water, and the Environment sector was taken through some of the interventions made by the county.
The county has set aside 2% of its development budget for climate financing as per the Makueni County Climate Change Act, 2022, and passed climate regulation, 2018, hence strengthening County Climate Change Fund (CCCF). Currently, the county is preparing to conduct a participatory Climate Risk Assessment (PCRA) so as to understand local climate risks and actions to build community resilience.
During their 2-day program, the delegates will have a field visit led by Dr. Sonia Nzilani, CECM, Land, Urban Planning & Development, Environment, and Climate Change to see how the county, partners have taken action in remediating climate change.
