The County Climate Change Fund Journey

The CCCF was originally known as the County Adaptation Fund (CAF). It was piloted in Isiolo County in 2012-13 under the leadership of the then Ministry of State for Development of Northern Kenya and Other Arid Lands (MDNKOAL) with support from International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), Kenya Meteorological Department (KMD) and the Resource Advocacy Programme (RAP). The successes in Isiolo led to its replication in four other Arid and Semi-Arid counties of Kitui, Makueni, Wajir and Garissa.

The National Drought Management Authority working through the Adaptation Consortium is scaling out the CCCF mechanism to additional counties of Vihiga, Nandi, Kisii, Kakamega, Kisumu, Bomet, Narok, Siaya, Taita Taveta, Tharaka Nithi, Embu, Machakos, Kilifi and Kwale. Other counties interested in scaling out the CCCF mechanism will opt-in and will go through a phased approach that is readiness, implementation and accreditation. They will also report against clearly defined standards.
