In Kenya, NCE completed a cross-economy analysis (CEA) scoping report looking at existing models, capacities, needs and gaps in-country with a focus on the two highest emitting sectors – agriculture and energy. To inform the CEA, the NCE team conducted robust stakeholder mapping and engagement, which culminated in the formation of a technical working group that provided inputs into the CEA scoping exercise. The taskforce included representatives from the National Treasury and Planning’s State Department for Planning (SDP), the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (KIPPRA), and the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS).  

NCE worked with KIPPRA to conduct the CEA, which mapped the capabilities and gaps of models and tools across 74 different institutions in Kenya. The results of the CEA revealed that there is high demand for analysis and capacity building support in the agriculture and energy sectors and beyond to support the green economic transition. Building on these results, NCE and KIPPRA hosted a week-long capacity building training with senior officers from national and county governments, the private sector, academia, and NGOs covering several of the modelling and analytical gaps identified through the survey. 

The NCE team has also worked with KIPPRA on their youth capacity building efforts, including supporting a workshop for 15 youth representatives on writing, policy making and presentation skills. The youth representatives, with support from KIPPRA, developed a communique and policy briefs on capacity building for youth, financing youth activities, sustainable plastic waste management, and climate-smart agriculture.
