Kenya is rich in natural and human resources and has one of the largest economies in sub-Saharan Africa. Still, two out of every five Kenyans live on less than US$2 a day. A similar fraction of young people is out of work. Climate change, environmental degradation, gender inequality and other challenges threaten the country’s economic and social development. However, the challenges are opportunities to build a resilient and inclusive future for its rapidly growing population.

Working with communities, government, businesses and donors, Practical Action harnesses the power of clean energy, sustainable agriculture, water, sanitation and waste management to tackle poverty, create jobs, empower women, reverse biodiversity loss and combat the climate crisis.
