Climate change governance at subnational level: key lessons for Kenya’s county governments

The paper explores why subnational units should be on the forefront to tackle climate change, with examples from the states of California and Sao Paulo.

The paper highlights that subnational governments provide a platform for addressing climate change as the international community struggles to reach an agreement to maintain greenhouse gas concentration to safe levels. It argues that the successes and failures experienced by these States provide lessons for Kenyan county governments on how to develop and implement climate change policies. It makes recommendations for Kenyan counties based on the lessons from the two states.
