The Kenyan Climate Change Adaptation (KCCAP) Programme
This programme is an amalgamation of several climate change adaptation projects designed to address five thematic areas, namely,
1.    Food security
2.    Water management
3.    Coastal management
4.    Disaster risk reduction
5.    Knowledge management
Food security
On food security, this programme seeks to enhance climate change resilience for improved food security.
In order to achieve this, the programme has the following outlined outputs:
1.    Increased adoption of drought tolerant food and high value crops and enhanced utilization through value chain approach
2.    Diversified alternative livelihood sources
3.    Increased food production through appropriate and efficient irrigation methods
4.    Increased animal production through promotion of drought resistant fodder crops; pasture conservation and emergency fodder banks
5.    Enhanced land productivity through ecological land use systems, conservation strategies and management technologies
Targeted areas: Marsabit, Kajiado, Kwale, Mombasa, Homa Bay, Laikipia and Machakos.

Water management:
On water management, this programme seeks to improve climate resilient water management systems to enhance food security in selected counties.
Output:
•    Established appropriate physical assets and infrastructure for water harvesting, storage and irrigation
Targeted areas: Laikipia, Kajiado, Kisumu, Wajir, Makueni, Kiambu, Meru, Kitui, Machakos, Marsabit, Kwale, Kilifi, TaitaTaveta, Mombasa, Lamu, Tana River and Garissa
Coastal marine management
Under this thematic area, the programme is set to increase resilience to the effects of rise in sea level and shoreline changes in the Kenyan coastal zone.
The output on coastal marine management is Implemented integrated shoreline and mangrove ecosystem management (ISMEM) which will be achieved by carrying out the following activities:

  •  Rehabilitation of Vangga and Gazi mangrove ecosystems
  •  Rehabilitation and protection of coral reefs
  •  Shoreline stabilization
  •  Erosion and accretion control
  •  Setting up of an inventory and GIS database for the shoreline and mangrove ecosystems

Targeted areas: Mombasa and Kilifi.


Disaster risk reduction
Under disaster risk reduction, this programme will increase the level of preparedness of communities that are vulnerable to climate change related disasters.
Outputs
1.    Established flood and drought adaptation measures on selected sites
2.    Established early warning systems
Targeted areas: Marsabit and Homa Bay

Knowledge management
This programme will strengthen capacity and knowledge management on climate change adaptation by undertaking the following outputs:
1.    Knowledge on climate change adaptation disseminated through print, electronic and art.
2.    Trained programme committees on programme management and staff on programme implementation
Targeted areas: Laikipia, Kajiado, Kisumu, Wajir, Makueni, Kiambu, Meru, Kitui, Machakos, Marsabit, Kwale, Kilifi, TaitaTaveta, Mombasa, Lamu, Tana River and Garissa
