The Kenyan Climate Change Portal is a one stop repository of climate change information in Kenya. It is an initiative of the Low Emission and Climate Resilient Development (LECRD) Project which aims to contribute to Kenya's overall goal in achieving transformative development, accelerating sustainable climate resilient economic growth while slowing down Green House Gas emissions. The portal will help to link climate change actors across various sectors and their initiatives by providing a platform to address issues relating to climate change. This will go a long way in eliminating the information gap amongst various actors in the climate change arena and also show case initiatives by different players.
