This will be achieved through development and implementation of consolidated adaptation programme including alternative income generation opportunities; improving rangeland management; raising awareness of stakeholders on adaptation options; empowering pastoral communities to better participate in decision making related to their livelihoods and integrating these options in relevant plans and policies.
The Outcomes and Outputs of this Joint Programme are:
Outcome 1: Climate change mitigation and adaptation options mainstreamed into national development frameworks (policies, strategies and programmes)
Outcome 2: Institutional capacities strengthened
Outcome 3: Pastoral community coping mechanism/ sustainable livelihood enhanced
