CLIMATE CHANGE, LIVELIHOOD & ENVIRONMENTAL PRESEVATION

This is a new program identified as one of the priority areas to be implemented under an integrated approach to addressing effects of HIV/AIDS, gender based violence; and women economic empowerment. The recurrent harsh climatic conditions resulting from the effects of global warming and desertification continue to pose environmental degradation and severe food insecurity in most parts of Africa. This has led to lack of water, causing human-animal conflict, particularly among the pastoralists communities. Agriculture which is the main source of livelihood for many communities in Kenya has also been seriously affected by adverse climatic conditions. Women and girls are also at risk. They are forced to cover long distance in search of water and livelihood, and may also be forced to adopt other risky behaviours for earning a living. In the event, they are also likely to undergo sexual violence that could increase their vulnerability to HIV/AIDS. More
