Scoping the cash and climate landscape in East Africa and Kenya: focusing on Cash and Anticipatory Action

In February 2024, NORCAP’s CashCap and Climate action teams undertook a joint East Africa regional and Kenya country level scoping mission about the potential of cash in anticipatory action to climate-related shocks. The main objective was to: Analyse the needs, capacity and adequacy for the CashCap and Climate Action portfolios to provide quality support to the stakeholders supporting preparedness and anticipatory action, in response to climate related crises, at East Africa regional and/or national level in Kenya, and in alignment with NORCAP’s strategy 2022-2024. The mission also aimed at identifying capacity gaps and needs in the implementation and coordination of anticipatory action in the region, and potential partnerships and entry points for NORCAP support.
