Finalité et objectifs
The objective of the Kenya - Adaptation to Climate Change in Arid Lands (KACCAL) is to design, implement and monitor cost-effective adaptation measures to climate change and variability in relation to food security and rural livelihoods in Kenya’s Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL) based on a systematic diagnosis of climate-related problems.

• Adaptation to climate variability and change is mainstreamed as demonstrated by reflection in district management and community action plans, and national strategies and policies • Increased diversity of household income sources/livelihood options using a modified version of the Core Welfare Indicators Questionnaire (CWIQ) methodology • Decreasing number and percentage of people of targeted communities in each ASALs district seeking/receiving free food aid • Reduced time lapsed between reported drought stress and response

• Impacts of climate change and associated vulnerabilities are recognized in the Vision and Strategy for the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands and other new national policy documents related to disaster and drought management and food security • District Annual Work Plans that explicitly that address climate related vulnerabilities across time-scales, evaluating short and long-term risks in their effect on sustainability of development processes • Adaptation community micro-projects are implemented • Relevant climate information supporting decisions are reflected in district level Annual Work Plans, EWS, and Drought Preparedness Plans • Local climate change scenarios are developed for pilot areas • Number of key stakeholders trained • Policy statement reflecting coordinated approach • Plan for rapid response in place • Cumulative number of CAPs in the pilot districts that reflect changing climate risks • Number of ALRMP districts beyond the pilot districts that have adopted long-term climate risk planning • Number of references to KACCAL experiences in other programs • New initiatives contributing to income diversification by communities and private sector are started
