Overview of community based Adaptation Learning Programme_NRM Learning Route_CARE Kenya


Published on

The Learning Route on Natural Resource Management and Climate Change Adaptation best practices, the experience in Kenya; took place between the 6-13 July 2014 in several counties in Kenya.

The objective of this learning route is to scale up through peer to peer learning the Kenyan best multi stakeholders' strategies, tools and practices to fight environmental degradation and to adapt to climate change with the aim of improving the livelihoods of people living in affected communities.

The learning Route has been developed by International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) CARE (relief agency) in Kenya and the Cgiar Research Program on Climate Change & Food Security, in partnership with Procasur Africa.

Here we have an overview of the presentation shared with us from our last of the three host case studies that were visited:

  2. 2. Goal & Purpose of ALP www.CARECLIMATECHANGE.ORG Goal: to increase the capacity of vulnerable households to adapt to climate variability and change, through community based adaptation approaches. •4 donors- UK, Denmark, Finland, Austrian governments •4 countries - Ghana, Niger, Kenya and Mozambique over 5 years, 2010-2014 •In Kenya- 6 communities, 4 districts, 1 county •General learning from ASALs
  3. 3. OUR APPROACH- CBA -A community  led process’  -  priorities,  needs,  knowledge, and capacities -It  is  a  process  -  continually  making  choices  in  an  uncertain climate  -Anchored on local priorities -Seeks to integrate scientific and local knowledge and in  decision making  -Operates at multiple level www.CARECLIMATECHANGE.ORG

  5. 5. CBA: Enhancing Adaptive Capacity • Adaptive capacity is defined as: – The ability of a system [human or natural] to adjust to climate change (including climate variability and extremes) to moderate potential damages, to take advantage of opportunities, or to cope with the consequences. • Ability to constantly adjust livelihood and risk management strategies in response to new and changing circumstances • Shaped by access to and control over resources • Influenced by external factors such as policies, institutions and power structures • Women and marginalized groups are often particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change – mobility • Adaptive capacity can vary over time based on changing conditions, and may differ in relation to particular hazards • WWW.CARECLIMATECHANGE.ORG
  6. 6. Local Adaptive Capacity Framework • Strengthening adaptive capacity concerns ability of communities to: • Access climate and other information and use it to manage risk and uncertainty: Knowledge • Anticipate, have flexible analysis, planning and monitoring processes: Decision making WWW.CARECLIMATECHANGE.ORG • Innovation driven by new and unexpected weather and climate scenarios and impacts • Have strong organisations and rights • Have access to resources and services: assets. • Take advantage of opportunities
