Published on

Kenya held its first ever National Adaptation Planning meeting for the Agriculture sector on the 16 and 17 September.

The meeting aimed at building consensus on the priority actions for agriculture proposed in the 2013 – 2017 National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP). These activities would then be fast-tracked for piloting.

The meeting was jointly organized by the Ministry of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (MEWNR); Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries (MALF), and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) East Africa Program.

This is a summary of key resolutions by all stakeholders involved.

Resolutions - Adaptation planning meeting for the agriculture sector

  1. 1. SUMMARY RESOLUTIONS Kenya National Adaptation Planning Meeting for the Agriculture Sector 16 and 17 September 2013
  2. 2. CSA Practices and Technologies Climate Smart Agriculture Definition: Agriculture that sustainably increases productivity, resilience (adaptation), reduces/removes GHGs (mitigation), and enhances achievement of national food security and development goals.
  3. 3. 3 Priority Actions for CSA Implementation in the period 2013-2017 • Building resilience to effects of climate change through water harvesting, storage and efficient use for increased agricultural production. • Agroforestry and sustainable land management. • Adoption of improved livestock and fisheries measures
  4. 4. Different Financing mechanisms to support CSA priority actions • MoALF to prioritize the CSA activities in the Agriculture Sector Working Group (SWG) in the ongoing annual budgeting process. • Improvement of absorption capacity of funds • Initiating & scaling up existing PPPs • Encourage Innovative investments mechanisms • Tapping into county resources via the County Integrated Development Plans (CIDPs) and other local level development funds
  5. 5. Knowledge and Capacity development to support CSA priority actions • Develop and strengthen capacity to support CSA technologies and practices in sustainable land and water management, agro-forestry, livestock and fisheries. • Generate and disseminate knowledge and information to support CSA in sustainable land and water management, agro-forestry, livestock and fisheries
  6. 6. Policy and Legal Frameworks to support CSA priority actions • Review and harmonize existing policies and contributing to new policies • Contribute to development of a chapter on CSA in the climate change policy, water bill • Advocacy and awareness creation to develop and implement CSA relevant policies for stake holders at all levels (2015) • Devolution of CCU to Counties (by 2015) • Generate climate risk and CSA information to facilitate finalization of evidence- based Agricultural Insurance Policy (2015)
  7. 7. Policy and Legal Frameworks to support CSA priority actions • Advocate for the development of a National Economic Instrument Act (2017) • Contribute to the development of policies on value chains focusing on agricultural product distribution (traceability and labelling), market structure and information systems (2015) • Contribute to development of a policy on climate data and information sharing by the year 2015.
  8. 8. Resolutions and Way Forward
  9. 9. CSA technologies and practices • Most of the CSA actions are in line with jubilee manifesto hence already have the political good will in taking these forward. There is however need to lobby the departmental committee on agriculture for financing the implementation. • There is need to bring on board county governments into the process taking into account that implementation of agriculture action has been devolved to the counties • There is a need to incorporate climate resilient crop types, crop management systems, and conservation agriculture.
  10. 10. CSA technologies and practices • Proposed actions should cover the entire crop, Fisheries and livestock value chain • Restocking of livestock and fisheries should be informed by current climatic conditions and future projections • Need to look at soil and water management systems including ground water resources. • Building codes should incorporate water harvesting
  11. 11. Capacity building • Identify information needs of stakeholders (eg parliamentarians, small holder farmers, youth), develop appropriate and targeted communication products and use appropriate communication channels including feedback mechanisms • Provide timely and accurate information for decision making
  12. 12. Finance and Investments. • The root cause of low absorption capacity needs to be addressed. The jubilee government has recognized the need to reform government procurement systems and procedures. • Frame CSA technologies and practices to tap into the existing and emerging funding mechanisms
  13. 13. Policies . • Prioritize the enactment of climate change bill and policy • Harmonization of sectoral policies for ease implementation and synergies • Cross cutting: Mainstream in to all the priority actions
  14. 14. Way Forward • Come up with a consortium to generate specific activities in targeted areas, timelines and budgets, based on the priority actions presented in this forum. • The actions should be categorized as short, medium or long term.
