About the programme

Kenya comprises of 80% arid and semi-arid land and has an economy and livelihoods that are heavily reliable on rain-fed agriculture, which is in turn vulnerable to extreme droughts exacerbated by climate change and variability. This programme seeks to enhance resilience and adaptive capacity to climate change for selected communities in various Counties in Kenya in order to increase food security and environmental management. Hence, the programme develops and implements integrated adaptive mechanisms to increase community livelihood resilience to climate change. The programme presents five components:
Component 1: Enhancing Climate Change resilience for improved food security in selected Counties
Component 2: Improving climate resilient water management systems to enhance food security in selected Counties in Kenya
Component 3Increasing resilience to the effects of rise in sea level and shoreline changes through Integrated Shoreline and Mangrove Ecosystem Management in the Coastal region of Kenya
Component 4: Disaster risk reduction and increasing preparedness among targeted vulnerable communities
Component 5: Strengthening institutional capacity and knowledge management on climate change adaptation
