The purpose of the project is to promote the implementation of the Paris Agreement in East Africa, focusing on increasing climate ambitions and integrating poverty alleviation. The project’s goal is to increase civil society’s influence in the adjustment process of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) and long-term low-emission development strategies (LEDS) in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. The project focuses on 1) capacity building by strengthening CSO knowledge and capacity within NDC and LEDS processes including poverty alleviation and opportunities for international funding; 2) strengthening networks and coordinating among national and regional coalitions through exchange of experience and cooperation and 3) developing and conducting coordinated advocacy aimed at national, regional and international institutions and decision makers for more ambitious and poverty-oriented NDCs / LEDs and for increased international funding for the implementation of NDCs and LEDSs.
