A recent study of Eldoret has revealed that the effect of climate variability is felt in all sectors of the urban economy. There is definitely need to urban landscape rehabilitation to capitalize on the biosequestration of urban agriculture and urban forestry for Eldoret. Through this regenerative green based approach a domino effect will be realized in the overall environment of the urban centre especially in residents’ livelihoods. An organic agronomic approach is socially and culturally acceptable to the majority of inhabitants who have African heritage. Secondly it is cost effective with an easy public outreach for a developing nation. Third, regenerative sustainable urban agriculture involve the majority of stakeholders who are the pubic, making them active players in climate change adaptation rather than leave it entirely on the hands of policy makers and governments. Fourth, the making of eco-neighbourhoods can be stimulated through adoption of community based and/or local authority based urban agriculture projects and programmes. Street based or block based agricultural projects such as integrated solid waste recycling depots can foster cohesiveness and interaction. Fifth, presently rain-fed agriculture is declining in peripheral rural Uasin Gishu district; the adopted new practices have the capacity of diffusing to the poor, technology-scared rural folks.
