Working languages: 

The Adaptation (Ada) Consortium, a core component of the National Drought Management Authority in Kenya is piloting County Climate Change Funds (CCCF) as a Devolved Climate Finance (DCF) mechanism in five arid and semi arid counties of Garissa, Isiolo, Kitui, Makueni and Wajir. The DCF mechanism aims at supporting county governments mainstream climate change in planning and implementation as well as prepare them to access global climate finance in support of adaptation and climate resilient development. The mechanism put communities in charge of the resilience by allowing them to prioritise public good investments that build their resilience to climate change.

The consortium brings together government agencies (National Drought Management Authority, and the Kenya Meteorological Department) international NGOs (International Institute for Environment and Development and Christian Aid) and local NGOs (Resource Advocacy Programme, Arid Lands Development Focus (ALDEF), Resource Advocacy Programme (RAP), Anglican Development Services – Eastern (ADS-E) and WomanKind Kenya ) and is funded by the Department for International Development (DfID) and the Swedish Government.
