Webinar on the Kenya-UK PACT (Partnering for Accelerated Climate Transitions) programme
Date/Time: Thursday 9 December 2021, 14:00 - 15:30 hrs (EAT) / 11:00 – 12:30 am (GMT).
Description: You are invited to join our webinar to learn more about the Kenya-UK PACT (Partnering for Accelerated Climate Transitions) programme and our upcoming call for proposals in the Nature-based Solutions sector. At this event we will be providing further details about this opportunity and how you can apply for grant funding. Through consultation with the Government of Kenya, UK PACT has identified key opportunities for environmental protection and emissions reductions in the nature-based solutions sector. We are looking to award grant funding to projects that will support the Government of Kenya to accelerate action and seize opportunities through Nature-based Solutions. We have consulted with the Kenya Ministry of Environment and Forestry and identified two priority areas:

  1. Addressing policy and institutional gaps and opportunities in forest conservation, management, and restoration
  2. The continued development and implementation of a national REDD+ system
