Building Adaptive Capacity to Climate Change (Kenya)

Kenya

Titre : Building Adaptive Capacity to Climate Change (Kenya)

The project aims to build adaptive capacity of the lead agency in water resources, the Water Resource Management Authority (WRMA), and the Water Resource User Associations (WRUAs)

Pays : Kenya

Date : Agreement Signed : 5 November 2010 Duration : 31 months

Ref : NDF C3 B9

Objectif
The objective of the project was to build adaptive capacity of the lead agency in water resources, the Water Resource Management Authority (WRMA), and the Water Resource User Associations (WRUAs) through : i) improved knowledge on the impacts of climate change on water resources ; ii) robust strategies for climate change adaptation ; and iii) improved adaptive capacity at the WRUA level to implement climate change measures.

Présentation
Prior to 2005 the water resource management sector in Kenya received little external support. The project provided guidance to WRMA and a number of locally based WRUAs on climate change issues, and set out priorities and approaches needed to strengthen capacity at different levels of adaptation measures. WRMA’s engagement and participation was one of the major contributions to the success of the project. The project built WRMA’s capacity to adapt to climate change and thus improve the scientific knowledge on possible climate change in Kenya and its impact of the water resources, and developed practical guidelines on adaptation to changes on climate and water resources. Furthermore, the project utilised the outputs to implement actions to address climate change in critical sub-catchments.
