The struggles to mitigate Climate Change and respond to the challenges brought about by the vagaries of weather require practical steps that have meaningful impact among the people. PACJA in partnership with UKAID through Trocaire have worked with local communities in 3 Counties to support the change of policy and legislation. In addition they have taken the extra step to demonstrate the effect of good policy and legislation on the ground by putting in place demonstrations farms to showcase some of the best farming practices in the difficult conditions that some of our farmers live in. In Ishiara, Embu through the work of the Order of St. Augustine, PACJA and Trocaire have supported the Demo Farms that have been a learning ground for farmers across the area. PACJA officer made a monitoring and Evaluation visit to get an insight on the depths of learning and the feedback from both the beneficiaries and the project implementors. The Challenges of insufficient resources to expand and create bigger impact stood out.
