Kenya submitted the revised NDC in 2020 which commits to a 32% reduction in emissions by 2030 compared to the business-as-usual scenario. The updated NDC has priority measures for disaster risk reduction, energy, land use, ecosystems and nature-based solutions, agriculture, infrastructure, transport, waste management, blue economy, water and sanitation, health, urbanization and housing, tourism, whole of society engagement, and private sector engagement. The estimated cost of NDC implementation is USD 62 billion (13% unconditional and 87% conditional financing) for 2020-2030. Kenya's National Adaptation Plan (2015-2030) serves as the basis for the adaptation component of the revised NDC and is costed at USD 38 million. Kenya launched a National Climate Change Action Plan III (NCCAP) (2023-2027) as a planning tool to implement the NDC measures aligned with vision 2030 and the Climate Change (Amendment) Act, 2023.
