About the project
We have won a project to conduct an evaluation and the annual review of StARCK+ with an aim to assess the progress against the project logframe, at output and outcome levels, with a specific focus on the ICF-KPI headline indicators. The review will also assess the extent to which the project has achieved the milestones in the Logframe. The primary recipient will be DFID Kenya. Other recipients include the International Climate Fund team at Climate and Environment Department, Climate team at the Africa Regional Department as well as the implementing partners of the five components of StARCK+, namely Government of Kenya, Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund Renewable Energy and Adaptation to Climate Technologies (AECF-REACT), Climate Innovation Centre (CIC), Adaptation Consortium, Act Change and Transform (ACT!) and the Finance Innovation for Climate Change Fund (FICCF) team made up of HTSPE, Matrix Development Consultants and the International Institute for Sustainable Development Consortium.
DFID Kenya is implementing the second phase of its climate change programme, Strengthening Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change in Kenya plus (StARCK+). The intended impact of the programme is to support Kenya’s achievement of the MDGs and achieve sustainable growth through improved response to climate change risks and opportunities. The intended outcome is that programme leads to the rapid scale-up of innovation and investment in low carbon and adaptation/resilience products, services and assets. The programme therefore focused on these areas through the following components:
- Catalysing private sector innovation and investment as Kenyan private sector plays a transformative role in promoting innovation and delivering climate resilient and low carbon growth
- Climate change governance: stronger policy, institutional and regulatory framework established to plan, budget and deliver climate resilient development by the state and the private sector
- Civil society: enhanced capacity of civil society and media to hold government to account on climate change delivery and impact, and demand delivery from government and stimulate the private sector on climate change products and services.
