NCCK fostering peace in the Kerio Valley belt

NCCK fostering peace in the Kerio Valley belt

The NCCK has taken a step to foster peace in the North Rift region by equipping 30 peace actors with skills to identify threats to peace, understand drivers of insecurity, and devise viable solutions.

The 30 peace actors, who were drawn from Elgeyo Marakwet, West Pokot, and Baringo Counties, were commissioned to build peace along the Kerio Valley belt.

During the 2-day training held at Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet County, the peace actors identified the scramble for the dwindling natural resources exacerbated by the adverse effects of climate change as the main driver of conflict and insecurity in the Kerio Valey belt.

The trained peace actors were tasked to facilitate public sensitization forums in their wards to ensure the insecurity menace is addressed from the grassroots level. Their mandate includes engaging communities directly to find sustainable solutions.

The communities will then create and present memoranda to duty bearers with an aim to prompt concrete responses from authorities to address critical issues related to peace, climate change, and governance in the region.

The training and subsequent engagements are part of the Dumisha Amani Bonde la Kerio (Maintain Peace in the Kerio Valley) that is being implemented in partnership with Tetra tech International.
