The Voice for Change Partnership Project (V4CP)

This V4CP project is designed and implemented under the premise that appropriate policies are a key component of stabilising the livelihoods of pastoral systems especially those that are geared towards adapting to a changing climate. Policies should be well formulated and adaptive to the needs of pastoral communities, incorporating indigenous knowledge and recognising the role of customary institutions. Supporting these is therefore paramount for to achieve the ambition of the project.

The long-term goal of the V4CP project under the theme of resilience is to achieve climate-resilient pastoralists’ communities with strengthened voice and participation in climate change policy-making processes in Kenya. This goal will be attained through the realization of enactment and implementation of inclusive legal frameworks and integration of pastoralists’ representatives in structures and processes of climate change decision-making. With PACJA’s vast experience and existing space as a credible CSO voice on climate change matters in Africa and particularly Kenya, and particularly in Kenya, PACJA understands and acknowledges the need for establishment of an institutionalized process for pastoralist organizations’.

The project goal is to increase pastoralist resilience to climate change by enhancing their voice in climate change policy formulation and implementation in Kenya.

OBJECTIVES

  1. To enhance capacity of V4CP partners and CSOs partners on understanding of climate resilience, climate policy advocacy and climate finance to facilitate integration of climate change into Food security, Renewable energy and Resilience work
  2. To Increase collaboration between CSOs, private sector and government for climate action.
  3. To facilitate improved accountability mechanism at national and county levels in climate change processes.
