President Julius Maada Bio has shared his take on the formation of the Financing Locally Led Climate Action (FLLoCA) at African Climate Summit in Kenya.
“Today, I joined my brother and host of the African Climate Summit, His Excellency William Ruto, at the launch of the Financing Locally Led Climate Action (FLLoCA) Programme – a Kenyan Government-led action-oriented initiative designed to benefit millions of Kenyans and lay the foundation for robust climate adaptation efforts over the next decade.” Bio noted.
He continued his message by explaining how the Kenya Government plan to reduce community-level vulnerability through impacting climate change and promoting the country challenges.
He said. “The transformative action taken by the Kenyan Government to reduce community-level vulnerability and build resilience to climate change impacts is a commendable step that should be replicated across Africa to promote country-specific solutions to the climate change challenges.”
He went on to state Sierra Leone’s readiness to work with Kenya and other development partners to strengthen similar initiative.
“On our part, Sierra Leone will work with Kenya and our development partners to formulate a similar initiative to strengthen our 446 wards nationwide,” he stressed.
At the end of his post he showcased his optimism to partner with other cooperation to design programs that will help countries develop projects.
“I am optimistic that our partners will be encouraged by such South-South cooperation and learning model amongst African countries. This could shorten the time to design various programmes and help countries move faster in developing bankable projects to crowd in more significant private investment flow,” he ended.
