The County Department of Energy, Environment, Natural Resources, and Climate Change on Wednesday held a pre-validation meeting for the Financing Locally Led Climate Action Programs for the financial year 2023/2024.

These programs have the objective of increasing the resilience of residents to the adverse effects of climate change, while also enhancing their livelihoods.

Ms. Mary Kerich, the Chief Officer for the department, underlined the significance of implementing projects that bring tangible benefits to the residents.

“Let us prioritize projects that truly make a difference in the lives of our people,” Ms Kerich said.

The project validation process will take place on Thursday, January 18th, across all the Sub-Counties, to pave the way for the implementation phase to kick off.

Present were Deputy Directors Kipchumba Barno ( Environment and Climate Change), Dr Silas Letting (Energy) and the Climate Change Unit Members.
