The Institute for Law and Environmental Governance (ILEG) is the implementing partner in Kenya. ILEG is an independent, non-profit public interest law and policy organisation seeking to transform the way governments make decisions that affect the environment and natural resources on which livelihoods depend.
If urbanisation drives climate change, then mitigating the dangerous effects of global warming must address how we plan, build and live in cities. Implementing bold national plans requires active cross-sector coordination and collaboration between the local, regional and national governments.
The IPCC special report on global warming of 1.5°C reaffirms the urgency of the Paris Agreement. To avoid dangerous consequences, global greenhouse gas emissions must reach net-zero by 2050. While the international UNFCCC climate regime has managed to orchestrate national climate commitments, current national mitigation targets fall well short of achieving the low-carbon transformation.
