Local Communities Endorse Climate Resilient Projects Under FLLoCA Program

Local Communities Endorse Climate Resilient Projects Under FLLoCA Program

Local communities in Saboti, Kinyoro, and Matisi wards support the implementation of climate resilient projects funded by the World Bank's FLLoCA program, as the County Climate Change Unit screens and oversees the selection of Project Management Committees

Communities in Saboti, Kinyoro, and Matisi wards within Saboti Sub County have enthusiastically endorsed the implementation of climate resilient projects identified under the World Bank-funded Financing Locally Led Climate Actions (FLLoCA) program.

The County Climate Change Unit (CCU) is currently conducting a meticulous screening exercise for the identified community projects to assess their environmental and social impacts. Godfrey Wekesa, the CCU Focal Person leading the team, expressed confidence that upon receiving approval, implementation would swiftly follow, with the grant already released and all necessary preparations in place.

In addition to project screening, the communities have also taken a proactive step in selecting the Project Management Committees (PMCs) responsible for overseeing the implementation and ensuring the continuity of the projects. The CCU has overseen the PMC selection process, ensuring transparency and community representation.

The screening and PMC selection exercises are slated to continue until May 16th, covering all 25 targeted wards. Each project will establish a seven-member PMC drawn from the local communities where the projects are to be implemented.

Among the diverse array of projects identified are initiatives such as water connectivity, the rehabilitation of water springs, establishment of nurseries for indigenous and fruit trees, rehabilitation and equipping of fish ponds, and provision of energy-saving jikos to vulnerable groups. These projects align with the goals of enhancing climate resilience and promoting sustainable development within the communities.

The enthusiastic endorsement and active participation of the local communities underscore the collective commitment to addressing climate change challenges and fostering resilience at the grassroots level.
