Challenge

In Kenya, the increase in the frequency and magnitude of extreme environmental shocks caused by climate change has exacerbated the condition of food and nutrition insecurity of the most vulnerable households, causing erosion of livelihoods, a decrease in crop production and loss of livestock. Arid and semi-arid land (ASAL) communities, including in West Pokot, where the main livelihoods are pastoralism and agro-pastoralism, are particularly affected and vulnerable to such events.

Solution

In a context of unpredictable climate change, the project contributes to climate change resilience, adaptation, and sustainable economic development of rural communities in West Pokot through diversification of livelihoods, enhanced water availability, and improved food security in a multi-sectoral intervention. The project is built on the foundation that people have the right to be main actors of their own change.

Long-Term Impact

The project aims at creating a model of sustainable development in the community by ensuring equal access to resources, improved well-being for all, and resilience to climate change.
