Devolution and Climate Change Adaptation (DaCCA)

Farmers teach each other how to embrace the use of solar irrigation pumps and drip irrigation system as a strategy for adapting to climate change and improving their livelihoods.

This component document builds upon lessons learned from the 4 years component: Devolution and Climate Change Adaptation (DaCCA) ending December 2019.

The aim of the component 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.

In this second phase of the DaCCA component the focus will change from partner driven community projects to best practice models for upscaling, replication and funding from County authorities.

The decentralization process in Kenya where counties are given better economic and governance opportunities has created an environment and practice where communities are given the option to be involved in the hearing process following the terms for drafting the County Integrated Development Plans and the Annual Development Plans. The component will provide communities with training and insights in the hearing process and support the compilation of Community Adaptation Action Plans to be presented for the county at Ward and County level.

Moreover, this second phase of the DaCCA component will follow the vertical flow of the climate finances from the national level to the target counties.

The DACcA programme has its own homepage driven by the consortium partners.
