The scoping exercise on climate change and development in Kenya had the following broad objectives: To establish what stakeholders in Kenya regard as the most urgent research needs in relation to climate change and its implications for poverty reduction and sustainable development; identify what research other funders have supported, or are supporting, as well as where there are gaps; and provide a clear definition of researchable problems. The study gives an overview of how current climate variability and long-term climate change affects/may affect different sectors and its implications for poverty reduction and sustainable development in Kenya. Section three is a summary of interview results and discussions with a number of people from government, nongovernmental organizations, research institutes and development organizations working in Kenya while section four gives a prioritized list of research problems.
