CSOs Integration Intent Form
The Government of Kenya has received funds from the World Bank towards the Financing Locally-Led Climate Action (FLLoCA) Program and intends to apply part of the proceeds for payments under the contract for mapping out Civil Society Organizations involved in climate change adaptation and mitigation activities at county and sub-county levels in all counties in Kenya. The program development objective is to deliver locally-led climate resilience actions and strengthen county and national governments' capacity to manage climate risks. The program will focus on capitalizing the National and County Climate Change Funds; building county level capacity for planning, budgeting, reporting and implementation of local climate actions in partnership with communities; and strengthening of national level capacity for coordination, monitoring and reporting. The program will be implemented by the National Government in collaboration with County Governments.
The Financing Locally-Led Climate Action (FLLoCA) Program
The program development objective of FLLoCA is to deliver locally-led climate resilience actions and strengthen county and national governments' capacity to manage climate risks. The program focuses on capitalizing the County Climate Change Funds; building county level capacity for planning, budgeting, monitoring, reporting and implementation of local climate actions in partnership with communities; and strengthening of national and county levels institutional capacity for coordination, monitoring, verification and reporting on climate action, notably action for climate change adaptation. The program will be implemented by County Governments in partnership with local communities at ward levels, with armlengths support from the National Government.
The program is to be implemented as a hybrid Program, with an investment project financing (IPF) component for the activities at or funded by the national level agencies and a performance-for-results (PforR) component that represents 90% of the FLLoCA budget. The IPF component provides an opportunity to strengthen the national government's capacity to support County Governments' actions, enhance the collaboration between national entities on climate change, and facilitate national oversight of the Program.
