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.

The complainant can raise issues related to any of GCF’s policies and procedures, including those relating to social and environmental issues, indigenous peoples, gender, and information disclosure, among others. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating problem solving or conducting a compliance process.
