The video describes the involvement of women in decision making especially in the identification and prioritization of projects within the County Climate Change Fund model. Most women in arid and semi-arid lands are marginalized and are not involved in decision making.

Decentralising Climate Funds (DCF) is an action-research and advocacy project supporting communities in Senegal, Mali, Kenya, and Tanzania to become more resilient to climate change through access to locally-controlled adaptation funds. In Mali and Senegal the project is implemented by the Near East Foundation (NEF) with Innovation, Environnement et Développement en Afrique (IED Afrique) and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) as part of the Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) programme. In Kenya technical assistance is provided by the Adaptation Consortium (ADA) and IIED under the programme Strengthening Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change in Kenya Plus (StARCK+).In Tanzania technical assistance is provided by the Local Climate Adaptive Living Facility of the UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF-LoCAL) and IIED under the Assisting Institutions and Markets 4 Resilience (Aim 4 Resilience) programme.All four programmes are funded by the UK government.

The Adaptation Consortium (Ada) is helping strengthen the institutional arrangements that will enable climate finance from the GCF and other sources to flow through County Governments, as subnational implementing entities. The DCF mechanism (known as the County Climate Change Fund (CCCF) is set up by County Governments with support from Ada to enable vulnerable communities prioritize adaptation investments through representative ward-level institutions.
