Climate Change Planning Committees at Ward and County Levels

Climate Change Planning Committees

The committees are elected at the ward and county level. At the ward level, the Ward County Climate Change Planning Committees (WCCPC) are composed of 11 locally elected community members (men, women, youth) with equal voting rights. Government technical staff are co-opted to provide advice as necessary, but do not have any decision-making powers.


They are vetted publicly and chosen according to their moral standing within the community. In selection of investments, community members are represented by WCCPC who after consultation with them are responsible for identification and prioritization of investment that build their resilience to climate change. At the county level, County Climate Change Planning Committee made up of representatives from Ward County Climate Change Planning Committees, technical officers from the county government and other stakeholders strengthen and approve Ward County Climate Change Planning Committees proposals for funding.
