For long, elements of climate risk management have been pursued in Kenya by various national and county government institutions as well as non-state actors without an effective framework for coordination and appropriate guidance. The Adaptation Consortium (ADA), under the National Drought Management Authority (NDMA), sought to remedy this scenario by working with United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to develop a Climate Risk Management Framework to guide integration of climate risk manage ment in policies, programmes, plans and institutions in Kenya. This brief highlight key features of the ICRM framework, shares a summary of the capacity building experience, and provides key lessons and recommenda tions on the integration of ICRM in county development and resilience planning based on ongoing capacity building work with four counties. The brief concludes that incorporating ICRM is key for sustainable develop ment and climate resilience, and that counties can make use of recommended opportunities and entry points to adopt an integrated risk management approach.
