The County Climate Change Fund (CCCF) Mechanism is a devolved climate finance mechanism that facilitates the flow of climate finance to counties and enables public participation in its management as demonstrated in five ASAL counties of Isiolo, Garissa, Kitui, Makueni and Wajir. As part of the scale-out to Kwale, Narok and Siaya counties, a contextualization study under the World Bank-supported ‘Devolution and Locally-Led Climate and Disaster Risk Management project sought to build CCCF preparedness for the counties. While highlighting key features of the mechanism, this brief presents findings from the study including enabling factors, potential challenges and recommendations on pursuing successful preparedness, establishment and operationalisation of the mechanism. The main conclusion drawn is that the mechanism may have attracted significant interest from county executive and policy-makers but proper leadership and citizen engagement in the counties are required for CCCFs.
