Parliamentary Conservation Caucus Kenya set to launch its strategic plan

The Parliamentary Conservation Caucus Kenya (PCC-K) is set to launch its strategic plan on climate change, conservation and management of natural resources on July 13, 2023.

Speaking ahead of the launch at a Nairobi hotel, Homa Bay County Senator Moses Kajwang said that the Senate also has a caucus setting which could fit well with PCC-K’s efforts and plans on climate change and action.

He said, “Our intention is finding ways of working together by reducing duplication and completely eliminating competition seeing that when it comes to this agenda, there is no room for competition or duplication”.

Kajwang said that President William Ruto is in France to advocate for a new multilateral climate finance arrangement aiming to seek funds from the Global Climate Fund (GCF).

The Senator highlighted that GCF allocates $1billion dollars to help in climate capacity building citing that African countries faced humongous obstacles accessing the funds compared to Western co-operatives and organizations.

Echoing his remarks, PCC-K Co Chair Charity Kathambi said that Kenya is leading in climate change legislation in Africa and would be hosting the Climate Change Action Summit from 4th to 6th September 2023 in Nairobi.

She said that the summit seeks to bring together various climate change industry players and stakeholders from different countries across the globe.
