General

This investment is the System for Land-based Emisssions Estimation in Kenya (SLEEK). Funding under this initiative assists the Government of Kenya by building a national carbon accounting system (NCAS) that will compile information from Kenya's forestry and agricultural sectors. The system will have capacity for measurement, reporting and verification of greenhouse gases. It will support Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in developing countries (REDD+) readiness activities and reporting requirements. This will assist Kenya to receive benefits for reducing emissions from their forest sector, and can also support the Government of Kenya's broader capacity for land-use planning and policy decision making, which can benefit food and water security and efforts to build climate resilience. The total value of this initiative is $13.0 million over 5 years, starting 2011-12.
