Using Locally Led Adaptation To Enhance Food And Water Access In Turkana, Kenya


This working paper looks at the Enhancing Sustainable Water Access in Arid and Semi-Arid Lands in Kenya (EWASSA) project project funded by Grundfos Foundation and run by Practical Action in Turkana since 2019 to explore how an integrated approach to locally led adaptation (LLA) can effectively address the interconnected environmental, social, and economic challenges faced by communities in the region. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the project’s achievements thus far, examine the project’s approach to LLA, and place the project within the larger context of adaptation and adaptation finance in Kenya. Ultimately, the paper intends to understand the extent to which the project has facilitated the participation of communities in key decision-making processes to build their capacity to adapt to climate change impacts.
