COP26 Briefing: Community expectations towards energy development in Kenya

This brief­ing sum­maris­es pre­lim­i­nary study results on the top-three social per­for­mance indi­ca­tors, based on the rank­ing by com­mu­ni­ty rep­re­sen­ta­tives: i) Access to afford­able health care; ii) Cre­ation of decent jobs (direct and indi­rect); iii) Eco­nom­ic prospects of tourism. Over­all, the social per­for­mance cri­te­ria and select­ed indi­ca­tors reflect­ed the expec­ta­tions and con­cerns of the local com­mu­ni­ties. Com­par­i­son with the oper­a­tional Lake Turkana Wind Pow­er project shows that sim­i­lar issues were also con­sid­ered by that com­mu­ni­ty pri­or to con­struc­tion of the project.
