Descriptif
Climate change is projected to increase the variability of rainfall and temperature, increasing the risk of more frequent and severe droughts - and other extreme weather events - in Kenya’s arid and semi-arid lands. The project targets eleven counties in two major climate zones which have devolved powers under Kenya’s new constitution. Building capacity and institutions for the improved implementation of devolution is seen as necessary to enhance the climate resilience of Kenya’s arid and semi-arid lands. Interventions focus on increasing the adaptive capacities of communities and local institutions to develop evidence-based landscape planning. This will be done by increasing accessibility to climate data and information ; and enhancing the ability of community-based cottage industries to access markets and financial services. This project has an estimated lifespan of 5 years.
