Kenya Green Economy Strategy and Implementation Plan

Kenya’s long-term development goals are outlined in Kenya Vision 2030. The vision seeks to create "a globally competitive and prosperous country with a high quality of life by 2030."

Kenya has taken several steps towards a green economy and developed a strategy that seeks to consolidate, scale up and embed green growth initiatives in national development goals. The Green Economy Strategy and Implementation Plan (GESIP) provides the overall policy framework to facilitate a transition to a green economy and outlines the need to mainstream and align green economy initiatives across the economic, social and environmental spheres. As part of this process, IISD produced a draft of the GESIP, which served as a reference document for consultations with governments and key stakeholders. IISD identified a network of relevant country and national stakeholders to provide input into the GESIP.
