Climate Change Agreement Monitoring System Established

A system to monitor the implementation of the Climate Change Cooperation Agreement for Kerio River Ecosystem counties has been established.

This follows the training and equipping of Community Organizers and County Government Officials from Baringo, Elgeyo Marakwet and West Pokot Counties.

During a training held last Friday, the Community Organizers, who were recruited and involved in the implementation of the CORKE (Community Resilience in Kerio River Ecosystem) project, were taken through the Cooperation Agreement. This was to familiarize them with the commitments the county governments made when they signed the Cooperation Agreement in June 2019. They were then equipped with a monitoring tool to use in observing and recording the implementation of the different components of the Agreement.

The Community Organizers and County Governments officials appreciated the contribution made by CORKE in enhancing climate change governance in the region. The monitoring of the implementation of the Cooperation Agreement had been identified as one of the post-project sustainability strategies of CORKE.

CORKE was implemented over a period of 18 months by NCCK in partnership with Anglican Development Services Central Rift and the Christian Impact Mission. It was funded by DfID through the Deepening Democracy Programme of DAI (Development Alternatives Incorporated).

The Council is currently partnering with the Danish Church Aid (DCA) to implement a process of having Turkana County incorporated into the Cooperation Agreement.
