Kenya Climate Smart Agriculture Strategy 2017-2026

Passed in 2017
The broad objective of the Kenya Climate Smart Agriculture Strategy 2017-2026 (KCSAS) is to adapt to climate change, build the resilience of agricultural systems, and minimize emissions for enhanced food and nutritional security and improved livelihoods. The specific objectives of the KCSAS are to (i) enhance the adaptive capacity and resilience of farmers, pastoralists, and fisher-folk to the adverse impacts of climate change; (ii) develop mechanisms that minimize greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural production systems; (iii) create an enabling regulatory and institutional framework; and (iv) address cross-cutting issues that adversely impact climate smart agriculture. Four broad strategic areas have been identified for KCSAS: (i) Adaptation and building resilience by addressing vulnerability to changes in rainfall and temperature, extreme weather events, and unsustainable land/water management and utilization; (ii) Mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions from key and minor sources in the agriculture sector; (iii) Establishment of an enabling policy, legal, and institutional framework for effective implementation of climate smart agriculture; and (iv) Minimizing the effects of underlying cross-cutting issues, such as human resource capacity and finance, which would potentially constrain the realization of climate smart agriculture objectives.
