CSDI is collaborating with communities being supported by the Community Development Trust Fund (CDTF) in implementation of two community-based climate change adaptation and mitigation projects in Makueni and Siaya counties.
CSDI is partnering in these two projects with the Nthungui Agricultural Development Group (NADG) in Makueni and Participatory Research and Development Program (PARADEP) in Bondo, Siaya: both organisations are grassroots' based CBOs and have been involved in community mobilisation for the projects.
The two projects respectively are funded for a period of three years and are focusing on enhancing communities' adaptive capacities to mitigate against deleterious impact of climate change, while at the same time contributing to the realisation of food and income securities for a significant portion of the two communities.
The CDTF senior management has already launched the Makueni project on Wednesday, 2 February 2012 at an elaborate ceremony at Muuani trading centre near Emali town, graced by the Programme Manager of the Community Environment Facility (CEF) of the CDTF, Mr Ruhiu, and the Programme Officer in charge of the grants, Ms Rose Sirali. The Siaya project will be launched towards the end of February 2012.
CSDI wants to express its appreciation to the CDTF for its stewardship of the program and for lending this critical support to the community.
