Strengthening men and women from communities to be able to identify, plan, present and negotiate climate change adaptation interventions
We work in cross sectoral Working Groups consisting of consortium members that form the backbone of the component outputs; Community sector output, Advocacy & Communication, Consortium and the private sector
Our aim is to support vulnerable populations in Kisumu, Homa Bay and Migori counties at risk of natural hazards caused by climate change by increasingly supporting policies and components funded by devolution and climate change funds.
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.
