Project title: Community Resilience Building in Livelihood and Disaster Risk Management (REBUILD)
Funded by: The European Union
Lead agency: Comitato Internazionale per lo Sviluppo dei Popoli (CISP)
Overall term: 2019-2023 (46 months)
ASAL areas of Kenya have undergone ever frequent droughts over the last decade, which have left a vulnerable population in an even more disaster-risk-prone scenario. The REBUILD project aims to contribute towards increased resilience of communities in ASAL areas of Kenya to drought and other effects of climate change. The action’s four key components of change focus on enhancing the productivity of existing livelihood, promoting marketing and the utilization of nutritious food, protecting community productive assets against climate hazards, and empowering individuals, community groups, and authorities to embrace innovation and become leaders of sustainable change at all levels. The REBUILD project is implemented by CISP in collaboration with the National Drought Management Authority, GROOTS, Nature Kenya, and Procasur in Tana River County, Kenya. It targets 9,200 households, 16 schools with 4,800 children, 36 CBOs and 54 women groups, 290 government officers, and 22,000 community members.
ENV will serve the EU-funded Action from the beginning of its implementation in December 2019 to its end in 2023. Our experts have designed the MEAL plan, assessed the project baseline, and trained the consortium staff on MEAL. We will furthermore provide household-level surveys, and the external midterm and final evaluations of the REBUILD project.
