General

In Kenya's Ewaso Ng'iro North Catchment Area (enNCA), climate change impacts such as increased severity and frequency of floods and droughts are being exacerbated by rapid changes in agriculture, energy systems, water and land use. This leads to increased water abstraction, land degradation and deterioration of ecosystem health, ultimately threatening water, energy and food security. The project addresses knowledge gaps on the impacts of climate change. It will facilitate the production of knowledge on the impacts of climate change on water, energy, agriculture and land use, and the benefits of ecosystem-based adaptation. This will be done in partnership with the county governments of Laikipia, Samburu, Isiolo, Meru and Nyeri, their local communities, private agribusinesses and NGOs. The project promotes cross-sectoral collaboration to support decision and policy making.
