Climate adaptation is an urgent priority for the county decision makers and practitioners. Institutional capacities and regulatory framework to respond to avert climate change impacts are vital for economic, social and environmental management at the County levels.
With the devolved government system, Counties are expected to consider certain factors in planning including environment, climatic conditions, economic disparities, marginalized groups and gender equity among others. Statistics show that development especially in the counties does not take cognizance of climate change issues into consideration.
This situation can be blamed on the inadequate awareness of their implications on development, lack of enabling regulatory framework and the lack of skills to integrate them in planning. Devolved government system creates a need for enabling regulatory framework to support climate change actions and a comprehensive County Climate Change Action Plan.

Developing County Climate Change Action Plans
Climate change is a key development challenge that has significant effects on sustainable development. It poses a risk to sustainable development and achievement of the vision 2030 as it affects livelihoods, health and economic development among other sectors. Creating climate-resilient and low–carbon development path has become a development imperative and its integration is a prerequisite for sustainable development.
The National Climate Change Response Strategy (NCCRS) reveals Kenya’s economy being susceptible to significant disruption from extreme climate events such as floods and droughts. Some of the clear indications of this situation include loss of infrastructure, reduced agricultural production, reduced food security, increased incidences of flooding and droughts, widespread disease epidemics, and increased risk of conflict over scarce land and water resources among others
