Adaptation is the priority of the Government of Kenya to enable people to cope with and take advantage of the opportunities presented by climate change. Adaptation involves taking practical actions to manage risks, reduce vulnerabilities of communities and strengthen the resilience of the economy against the impacts of a changing climate.
Decisions and investments to address climate change need to be based on reliable information and robust data. Public access to information is enhanced through on-line tools and a resource centre, described below. Capacity is being built to enable stakeholders to understand climate change and to develop strategies and responses to address the challenges and opportunities.
JotoAfrika is a series of printed briefings and online resources about adapting to climate change in sub- Saharan Africa. The series helps people understand the issues, constrains and opportunities that poor people face in adapting to climate change and escaping poverty.
