Preparing for Climate Change in Kenya: Early Outcomes of the Project "Increasing Community Resilience to Drought in Makueni District"
"Increasing Community Resilience to Drought in Makueni District" is one of three pilot projects being implemented as part of the regional project, "Integrating Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate Change into Sustainable Development Policy Planning and Implementation in Eastern and Southern Africa (ACCESA)." Through pilot projects in Kenya, Rwanda and Mozambique, ACCESA is working with communities to introduce measures to reduce their vulnerability to climate variability and climate change. It is also working to integrate adaptation to climate change into national policy- and decision-making, allowing for amplification of benefits across a wider area and over a longer period of time.
Funding for this project has been provided by the Global Environment Facility and the governments of the Netherlands and Norway, and supported by in-kind contributions from the Governments of Germany, Kenya and Rwanda.
