Integrating gender and social inclusion dimensions in climate smart interventions: Experiences from Kenya cluster, AICCRA

Abstract

AICCRA Kenya cluster’s focus is on drylands. Arid and semi-arid lands (ASALs) make up nearly 90% of Kenya’s land cover and approximately 38% of Kenya’s population reside in ASALs. Climate change effects in drylands include severe and prolonged drought and flooding. Climate-smart agriculture and climate information systems are essential to reduce risk and build resilience for better livelihoods in drylands.
