The Kenya County Climate Change Fund (CCCF) mechanism, initially piloted as the Climate Adaptation Fund in Isiolo and subsequently scaled out to Garissa, Kitui, Makueni and Wajir Counties, is a pioneering mechanism to facilitate the flow of climate finance to county governments and simultaneously empower local communities, through strengthening public participation in the management and use of those funds, to build their resilience to a changing climate.

It is a practical example of how climate finance can support climate-resilient development and effective adaptation as set out in the Paris Agreement.

It has been piloted successfully in five counties, and its expansion is one of the priorities in the National Climate Change Action Plan, 2018-2022
