Project Description

The overall objective of the project is to reduce the cost of climate change induced drought on Kenya’s national economy by increasing resilience of the livestock and other land use sectors in restored and effectively governed rangeland ecosystems. The objective will be delivered through the following three components: 1] Climate change adapted planning for drought resilience; 2] Restoration of rangeland landscapes for ecosystem based adaptation; and 3] Investments and incentives for climate change resilient ecosystem management. These 3 components respond to the priorities raised during consultation with partners and key stakeholders. The components will support sustainable progress in the main domains of interest: sustainable pastoralism, improved water management in anticipation of droughts, and enhanced value-chain production and markets for livestock and other products.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND

The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) is the independent complaint mechanism for a person or people who have been or believe they are likely to be adversely affected by a project or programme funded by the Green Climate Fund. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating a problem-solving dialogue or, if that is not possible, conducting an independent investigation into whether the GCF has complied with its environmental and social policies. The IRM is newly created and is still in the process of developing its procedures and website. More information about the IRM and how you can file a complaint is forthcoming. You can contact the IRM at irm@gcfund.org.
