The Adaptation (Ada) Consortium, a core component of the National Drought Management Authority in Kenya is piloting County Climate Change Funds (CCCF) as a Devolved Climate Finance (DCF) mechanism in five arid and semi arid counties of Garissa, Isiolo, Kitui, Makueni and Wajir. The DCF mechanism aims at supporting county governments mainstream climate change in planning and implementation as well as prepare them to access global climate finance in support of adaptation and climate resilient development. The mechanism put communities in charge of the resilience by allowing them to prioritise public good investments that build their resilience to climate change.

The consortium brings together government agencies (National Drought Management Authority, and the Kenya Meteorological Department) international NGOs (International Institute for Environment and Development and Christian Aid) and local NGOs (Resource Advocacy Programme, Arid Lands Development Focus (ALDEF), Resource Advocacy Programme (RAP), Anglican Development Services – Eastern (ADS-E) and WomanKind Kenya ) and is funded by the Department for International Development (DfID) and the Swedish Government.

Participatory digital mapping using satellite imagery and digital earth and other open source Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a practical tool bridging the knowledge and communication gap between pastoral communities and county government planners. It is offering an effective option for participatory planning and decision-making in support of climate change adaptation in the drylands of Kenya.

The report summarizes the findings of a participatory assessment of returns on investments in strengthening customary institutions for natural resource stewardship in four wards of Isiolo over the long dry season of 2014. Due to the rapid timeframe for the assessment, many observed benefits were not yet quantified. However, those that could be appraised so far already outweighed the investments made through the Isiolo Climate Adaptation Fund and by the members of the local institutions.
