Camco Advisory Services (Kenya) Limited (Camco),Kenya Flower Council (KFC) and Horticultural Crops Development Authority (HCDA), funded by the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CKDN), have for the last nine months rolled out a Carbon Reduction, Resources and Opportunities Toolkit (CaRROT)verson 2. This project was initiated to facilitate and accelerate the flower sector’s transition towards low-carbon and sustainable business practices. The focus was to develop a unified response to climate change mitigation through practical and localized accounting and management solutions for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions, energy efficiency and improved water usage. This has been achieved by developing a functional sectoralGHG and resource management toolkit (i.e. CaRROT), as well as self-regulating voluntary management standards to support the toolkit. The process aims at further enhancing the sectors’ access to potential climate related opportunities.

The Carbon Reduction, Resources and Opportunities Toolkit will be launched on 11th September.
