This document analyses the effects of climate change on ecosystems in Kenya. It is structured in 3 sections:

Section 1 explains how ecosystems and ecosystem services play a vital role for human well-being.

Section 2 identifies patterns of change stressing ecosystems and influencing their vulnerability.

Section 3 explores the effects of climate change on ecosystem services and the possible implications for human well-being and development given two possible future pathways.

This document analyses the effects of climate change on ecosystems at the regional level (East Africa):

Section 1 explains how ecosystems and ecosystem services play a vital role for human well-being.

Section 2 identifies patterns of change stressing ecosystems and influencing their vulnerability. This section also analyses the climate-sensitivity of most vulnerable ecosystems in the region.

Section 3 explores the effects of climate change on ecosystem services and the possible implications for human well-being and development given two possible future pathways for East Africa.

Section 4 shifts focus from climate change impacts on ecosystems and services to exploring the role and value of ecosystem-based approaches for adaptation.
