Global Conference 2018 RRR+ Kenya

  2. 2. National Context • Kenya has submitted the 2nd National Communication and NDC • Preparation for 3rd NC ongoing with the establishment of technical teams • The NDC targets emissions reduction by 30% below the 2030 emission baseline of 128 Mt CO2 eq. • All sectors to contribute to mitigation goals; Land sector highest • Forestry expected to reduce emissions by 50% of 2030 emission baseline • Assessment based on models that use past estimates of AD • REDD+ identified as key to realization of NDC goals Kenya
  3. 3. GHG Inventory and REDD+ • National GHG Inventory process coordinated by the Climate Change Directorate at the MENR • FRL and NFMS establishment coordinated by Kenya Forest Service • Country- driven process with multi-institutional Technical Working Groups • Land sector GHG estimates to be developed jointly as part of the SLEEK Program • Continuous Capacity development through FAO, CCI, JICA , FCPF and RRR+ • Strong need to synergize and harmonize efforts to ensure transparency and consistency and support reporting of REDD+ performance Kenya
  4. 4. FRL Progress • Definition: canopy cover >15%, tree height >2m height, and land area >0.5ha • Forest categories: o Plantation forests; Coastal and mangrove forest; Montane, western rainforest and bamboo forest; and Dryland forest o Canopy closure (above 65%, 40-65% and 15-40%) • Activities to monitor: deforestation, forest degradation, restoration activities • Scale: National - Recognize the existence of project activities • Scope (pools): AGB, BGB, Scope (gases): CO2 • Construction approach: Historical average • Mapping completed, AD, EF and estimates of historical GHG emission levels done; • FRL draft developed and under consultation with stakeholders to address several issues identified , including inconsistencies with GHGI 4 Kenya
  5. 5. Project Achievements so far: • Identify capacity gaps within institutions and entry points for capacity strengthening – Scoping Mission • Institutional and individual needs identified for intensive engagement for the development of the GHGI and FRL – Inception Workshop • Capacity building on GHGI preparation, training on data collection tools and review of IPCC Guidelines – Regional Workshop in Cameroun • Technical backstopping of the REDD+ FRL development – Peer Review of the draft FRL Kenya
  6. 6. Expected Project Goals: • Submission of the National FRL- refining the draft, submission and the Technical Assessment process • Submission of the 3rd National Communication • Harmonisation of procedures between REDD+ and GHGI • Full country-based capacity for GHG inventory and reporting for REDD+ • Established institutional networks for effective GHGI and reporting Kenya
