USAID will also invest Ksh 203 million to support the government in developing its carbon market activation plan, regulatory, and legal framework. 

The Clean Air Catalyst initiative, which is already active in Jakarta, Indonesia, and Indore, will focus on reducing air pollution in Nairobi. 

USAID plans to invest Ksh 217.5 million to expand Kenya’s BasiGo electric bus, contributing to clean and green public transport access in the region.
