Today, in Kenya, Commissioner Hoekstra will meet bilaterally with President William Ruto, and later in the day with the Minister of Environment, Climate Change and Forestry, Soipan Tuya; and then, with the Minister of Finance and Cabinet Secretary, National Treasury and Economic Planning, Njuguna Ndung’u. During the day, he will also meet with key representatives of civil society and the policy community.

Tomorrow, the Commissioner will visit an EU-funded project supporting regional capacity to monitor, analyse, and communicate weather patterns in the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) region in Eastern Africa, with the support of the World Meteorological Organisation. He will also deliver a speech to students at the University of Nairobi, outlining the EU’s priorities for advancement of the global climate action agenda.
