‘I think the biggest challenge we face is awareness, awareness about realizing that “going green” actually both pays and safeguards the future generation.’ Says Edward Mungai, who is CEO of the Kenya Climate Innovation Center (KCIC) in Nairobi. The centre provides incubation, capacity building services and financing to Kenyan entrepreneurs and new ventures that are developing innovative solutions in energy, water and agribusiness to address climate change challenges.
