  • In 2012 the National REDD+ Coordination Office under the then-Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife1 requested support to the United Nations Collaborative Programme on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries (UN-REDD) in order “to develop a comprehensive gap analysis of the forest related legal framework relevant to REDD+” with the technical support of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), one of the three UN-REDD implementing agencies. Following this analysis, the Ministry of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (now the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources) of Kenya requested support to the UN-REDD Programme in order to “integrate REDD+ provisions in key legislation under development and review.” This project was launched through an Inception Workshop on February 17, 2015 and has entailed multi-stakeholder processes in analysis of 6 policy and legal texts in their drafting phase – the Climate Change Act, the Forest Act, the Benefit Sharing (Natural Resources) Bill, the Community Land Act, the Climate Change Policy and the National Forest Programme – as well as the drafting and validation of provisions for these. This project aims to integrate REDD+ provisions in Kenya’s key legislation being developed or under reform processes and to make operational the recommendations formulated in the course of the 2013 targeted support project on legal preparedness.
