Summary

Sustainable Environmental Development Watch plans to design a communications toolkit to address barriers in integrating climate change in Kenya.

Challenge

Kenya's vulnerability to the impacts of climate change is experienced as back to back floods and droughts increasing in frequency, intensity and duration. This has led to displacement of people, the loss of human and animal life, as well as destruction of infrastructure. Sustainable Environmental Development Watch will contribute toward increasing public awareness on climate resilience options and opportunities with the climate change communication toolkit it will design.

Solution

The project will hold 9 two-day learning and training sessions on the entry points and the different roles of government, civil society and business that can support the implementation of the priority climate actions. The sessions will be categorised as 1 for national participants or stakeholders and 8 for the 47 counties which will be clustered into blocs.

Long-Term Impact

This project will expand the ability of the national and county legislature, state officers, civil society and community based groups, and business sector in Kenya to embed climate resilience in their specific day to day tasks. This action of embedding climate resilience will in the long-term significantly reduce Kenya's people, economy and livelihood vulnerability to climate change impacts.

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
