Nairobi, 14 December 2022 – The Platform on Disaster Displacement (PDD), in partnership with the Kenyan members of the Global Network of Civil Society Organizations for Disaster Reduction (GNDR), organized a civil society consultation on displacement and loss and damage titled Averting, Minimizing and Addressing Loss and Damage Related to Displacement and the Adverse Effects of Climate Change in Kenya.
This multi-stakeholder dialogue was organized in support of PDD’s Project to Avert, Minimize and Address Disaster Displacement (PAMAD), funded by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad). Kenya is one of the project’s implementation countries, alongside Fiji, Guatemala, and Bangladesh.
PAMAD’s global scope spans five pillars, namely: (1) Knowledge Development; (2) Displacement Risk Assessment; (3) Preparedness for Disaster Displacement; (4) Integrated Planning Process; (5) Access to Finance.
Through the discussions held at the event, technical experts and researchers from the civil society explored concepts and ongoing action on displacement related to climate change impacts in Kenya. The event allowed PDD to engage with new partners working on displacement and climate change all over Kenya, and to seek inputs from experts and practitioners on the scope and focus of the project activities to be implemented.
Inputs provided by the 16 participants, representing CSOs active in all regions of Kenya and facing a variety of climate impacts, have been integrated in the National Project Plan that will guide the operationalization of the global project priorities at country level.
