This report describes the analysis of Subcomponent 4 (SC4) – Mitigation, of Kenya’s Climate Change Action Plan. The analysis examines potential low-carbon development opportunities in the six mitigation sectors set out in Article 4.1 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC): energy, transport, industry, agriculture, forestry and waste management. This low-carbon scenario analysis – which includes a bottom-up assessment of mitigation opportunities and a top-down economy-wide economic, energy and emissions model – provides the evidence base for prioritizing lowcarbon development opportunities and developing proposals for 1) nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs); and 2) reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation plus the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+).
