The Devolution and Climate Change Adaptation programme (DaCCA) currently operates in Western Kenya and has been running since November 2015. It is supported by SustainableEnergy (SE), Denmark through DANIDA funds. The first phase of the programme took an approach of partner driven community projects, as well as facilitation and strengthening of communities to undertake their rights in the county budget hearing process.
The second phase of the programme began in January 2020 and is set to end in December 2023. This phase will act as a continuation of the first phase with a focus on advocating for the use of devolved funds from county authorities for upscaling and replication of identified community best practices on climate change..
The programme’s vision is to have an increasingly qualified CSO’s sector which works closely with the most vulnerable groups (right-holders) and duty-bearers on climate change adaptation interventions. The corporation builds on the opportunities provided by constitutional devolution processes and the climate change Act.
The immediate objective of the programme is: Vulnerable populations in Kisumu, Homa Bay and Migori counties at risk of natural hazards caused by climate change are increasingly supported by policies and components funded by devolution and climate change funds.
Phase II will be implemented in the counties of Kisumu, Homa Bay and Migori. However, Kisumu’s activities will be phased out at the end of 2020. The beneficiaries of the programme are; vulnerable communities, county govts and private sector actors the named counties
