Climate Change: NCCK, DCA to Partner with Baringo County

The National Council of Churches of Kenya is set to partner with the County Government of Baringo in addressing Climate Change and other social issues. This will be achieved through promotion of climate smart agriculture and community-level climate change interventions as well as the use of pulpits to pass messages of peace and civic education.

This was agreed upon during a consultative courtesy call on the Governor, His Excellency Benjamin Cheboi, by an NCCK team led by Bishop Musa Kamuren. Also present in the meeting were Richard Naaman Tamar, CEC for Water, Irrigation, Environment and Natural Resources, Architect Reuben Rutto, CEC for Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Rev Christine Kipkosiom, Women Mediator for Baringo, and David Njuguna, the NCCK Manager for South Rift Region.

Governor Cheboi welcomed the implementation of Uwajibikaji na Maendeleo, a project that NCCK is implementing in partnership with Danish Church Aid (DCA) in Baringo and Elgeyo Marakwet Counties.

The goal of of the project is to enhance capacities of communities to develop and implement local disaster risk reduction and climate resilient interventions. The project will also facilitate advocacy between stakeholders and duty holders, and also support strengthening of Core Humanitarian Standards for Accountability Improved Planning.

To promote climate smart agriculture and other climate change interventions, the NCCK will equip clergy and other church leaders to use their platforms to educate the community.

On his part, Governor Cheboi committed to spearhead a process to review the Baringo County Climate Change Act 2022 so as to include church leaders in the county and ward committees.

The NCCK and DCA will moving forward seek ways to support pyrethrum production in the County.
