The meeting aimed at developing a proposal concept note for NOREB to be presented to GCF and coordinated by National Treasury and National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) with support from Hanns Seidel Foundation.
The team comprised of Chief Officers and Directors from the Department of Environment in the region who engaged in the harmonization of climate action and environmental conservation plans.
NOREB Chief Executive Officer Dr. Dominic Biwott who was the chief guest during the workshop reiterated the need for the counties to allocate a given percentage of funds for climate change interventions.
For environmental conservation to be realized, the society needs capacity building, implementation of ideas and serious sensitization forums,” Said Dr. Biwott.
