County Climate Change Fund Achievements

CCCF legislations enacted in seven counties - Isiolo, Wajir, Garissa, Makueni, Kitui, Vihiga and Tharaka Nithi - with the counties committing a percentage (1 to 2%) of their development budget to the CCCF kitty.

Local communities in-charge of their development agenda: Vulnerable communities are presented with a budget of available funds which help them to identify investments that can build their resilience to climate change. Over 500,000 people and more than two million livestock are benefitting from over 100 public good investment funded by the CCCF mechanism.

Climate information service for better decision making:– timely and relevant climate information is leading to better planning at both the household and community level. At the community level, farmers are making informed decisions on what and when to plant, while pastoralists on access and management of pasture and water. The mechanism has promoted the use of climate information by more than two million users across the five counties.

Women involvement in decision making:– Through the inclusion process, women are able to add their voices on the type of investment that will build their resilience to climate change. Initially, their contributions were minimal or none at all. This underpins one of the CCCF principles of strong community involvement (youth, women, men,) throughout the project cycle.

Strong Community Institutions in Natural Resource Governance: - This was enabled through reviving of traditional institutions that regulated the use of pasture and water. This has led to better management and use of these resources.

Alignment with National Policy and Legislative Framework: - CCCF is aligned with the national policy and legislative framework for climate change in Kenya, as articulated in the Climate Change Act (2016), and is a priority in the current National Climate Change Action Plan
