It is highly recommended that the entire knowledge base and portfolio of resources for communication, training and awareness created by this project, be curated made available online given that it currently very hard to find all the resources from the very many activities of this project. This is where the National Climate Change Resource Centre (NCCRC), University and Institutional partners and Community Education Business and Information Centre (CEBIC) could play a significant role. This should be easy and quick to implement, with limited cost implications and will make a significant contribution to the longevity and wider impact of the project.
This knowledge base should be consolidated as soon as possible in a place that will be accessible for the foreseeable future.


It is recommended that the standards, rating tools, fact sheets etc. developed under the project e.g. Green Building Standards for Kenya be piloted immediately and additional funds leveraged for this purpose to ensure they serve their purpose as demonstration projects with aim mainstreaming them into regular programming in the future.


Aligned with the above, it is further recommended that efforts be made to leverage further funding through the project, and help unlock or crowd in development partners or complementary projects by leveraging the initial gains of the project to support the activities that have been started under various key results areas. This seems to be an area where the project has excelled with seed funding for example already coming in to the tune of 350,000 (USD) from France and DFID to support the Kenyan Climate Change Adaptation (KCCAP) Programme.


As a priority, provide support for the completion of operationalization of the activities of National Climate Change Council which was envisaged as an output in the Key Result Area 1. The council is at the apex of coordination and guidance in implementation of obligations and functions under the Climate Change Act, 2016. Therefore, its establishment and operationalization is a priority to ensure that it takes charge of the
process of legislative implementation and preserve the gains that have already been achieved under LECRD such as the strengthening of the CCD, the secretariat to the council.


There was no evidence of a midterm evaluation being undertaken for the project. This needs to be considered in the next phases or in future projects in order continued relevance of the intervention and the progress made towards achieving its planned objectives. A midterm evaluation would provide an opportunity to make modifications during project implementation to ensure the achievement of overall objectives within the lifetime of the project.
