Adapting to Climate Change in Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (KACCAL) in Kenya

Kenya

Titre : Adapting to Climate Change in Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (KACCAL) in Kenya

Country : Kenya

Climate-Related Hazards Addressed : Drought/Water Scarcity

Implementing Agencies & Partnering Organizations : UNDP ; GEF  ; World Vision Kenya ; Kenya Ministry of Agriculture ; World Bank

Contexte
The rural poor are the most vulnerable to the impacts of Kenya’s current climate variability. In response this project is supporting poor and vulnerable communities in the Mwingi District of the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs) to enhance their adaptive capacity to drought (and flood). Working in the pilot areas, this is being achieved through enhanced access to and management of water for irrigation, promotion of indigenous crops that more resilient to anticipated climate (and improved access to markets for these crops), and promoting livestock varieties that are more suited to the climate, development and promotion of alternative livelihood opportunities (such as beekeeping activities).

Key Results and Outputs
•Outcome 1 : Enhanced capacity of national and regional stakeholders to plan, manage and implement climate change adaptation measures •Outcome 2 : Enhanced capacity of district and local level stakeholders to plan, manage and implement climate change adaptation measures •Outcome 3 : Enhanced communities‟ ability to plan, manage and implement climate-related activities

Primary Beneficiaries : Communities in the selected districts of the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs). This joint project seeks to develop and pilot a range of coping mechanisms for reducing the vulnerability of small-holder farmers and pastoralists in rural Kenya to long-term climate change, including variability.

Funding Source :Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF)
Financing Amount : US$2,350,000 (as of January 2013)
Co-Financing Total : 1,350,000 (as of January 2013)

Adaptation Learning Mechanism (UNDP)

Adaptation Learning Mechanism (ALM) UNDP : As an interactive online portal for sharing adaptation knowledge with improved availability and accessibility of knowledge for adaptation, the ALM has allowed for a broader dissemination of good adaptation practices
