Launch of the county green finance assessment report

March 22nd, 2024

FSD Kenya conducted an assessment on the potential for 10 counties to access the green finance market.

The assessment was done with the approval of The National Treasury and Economic Planning and in partnership with Agusto & Co.; the Capital Markets Authority; ADA Consortium and the Nairobi Securities Exchange.

The 10 counties assessed are: Embu, Kirinyaga, Kisumu, Laikipia, Nairobi, Makueni, Nandi, Taita-Taveta, Vihiga, and Wajir.

The assessment focused on the following:

  • Economic and fiscal assessment to gauge a county’s fiscal performance, strengths, challenges, and ability to take on (additional) debt.
  • Credit risk assessment to estimate the county government’s relative likelihood of defaulting on its obligations from the listing.
  • Green asset and activity assessment to evaluate availability of green investment opportunities and assets in the selected counties.
  • Green finance capability assessment to analyse a county government’s ability to manage green financial instruments and related projects.

The county green finance assessment report was launched on Thursday, 25th April 2024, 8:00 am – 11:00am (EAT) in Nairobi. Below is the recording of the launch event.
