Political Nexus

Evaluating political party manifestos focusing on sustainability and climate action.

Kenya is headed to a transitional general election in 2022 and candidates are traversing the country promoting different economic models. Climate change is a global crisis and Africa is estimated to be worse hit by 2030 if no immediate action is taken by different stakeholders including the government. This is the rationale for which KCIC and The Standard Group seek to rally political leaders to address climate change and make sustainable commitments for action when elected. The initiative will evaluate manifestos of each political party with a focus on sustainability and climate action. This will be achieved through organized roundtable interviews and presidential debates in partnership with the Media Council of Kenya. KCIC will offer technical support for any party without climate action embedded on their manifestos.
