Climate change in Kenya: Projections, impacts and way forward

Source(s):  Save the Children International (SCI)

This report calls for mainstreaming Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) into development interventions in Kenya. With increased vulnerability in the region, climate change is one of the many obstacles to achieving sustainable development and improving resilience in the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALS).

Mainstreaming climate change adaptation does not necessarily require an increased financial burden on different sectors. It does, however, involve forward thinking and a shift in approach in project implementation. This will require the following:

  • establishing a culture of prevention and mainstreaming DRR/CCA;
  • taking an integrated management approach and understanding the current and future context of the region (socio-economic, environmental, and climatic);
  • aligning interventions with governments and existing plans to ensure their sustainability;
  • advocating for longer term funding in project proposals where building resilience is identified as an overall objective.
