Our award-winning project recognized by the UNFCC project was implemented in Kenya’s urban slums thanks to funding through the Nordic Climate Facility financed by the Nordic Development Fund (NDF) and administered by NEFCO. The project was implemented together with local partner the Institute of Environment and Water Management.
