Nairobi, 15 December 2022 – The Platform on Disaster Displacement (PDD), in partnership with the Ministry of Environment, Climate Change and Forestry, organized a multi-stakeholder 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.
The event was attended by 18 representatives of Kenyan Governmental Institutions (Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Water, Meteorological Authority, National Drought Management Agency, National Disaster Operations Centre, Council of Governors), International Organisations (IOM, UNHCR) and Civil Society Organisations.
Trough the discussions held at the event, partners explored concepts and ongoing action on displacement related to climate change impacts in Kenya. The event allowed PDD to engage with new stakeholders working on displacement and climate change at national and local level in 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 participants have been integrated in the National Project Plan that will guide the operationalization of the global project priorities at country level.
