The Consortium works through the government’s planning and budgeting systems and does not create new, parallel processes. This is essential in ensuring systemic and transformative change where planning for climate change adaptation including climate risk management is fully mainstreamed and thus sustainable. 

Through NDMA the Consortium engages with national institutions such as the Ministry of Devolution and Planning; the Ministry of Environment, Water and National Resources; the Climate Change Secretariat; the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA); the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries; and Kenya Meteorological Services.

The Consortium builds on a pilot project implemented in Isiolo between 2009 and 2013 implemented by the then Ministry of State for Development of Northern Kenya and Other Arid Lands in partnership with IIED, KMS and Ministry of Planning funded under DFID’s Strengthening Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change in Kenya (StARCK) programme. It also draws on experiences of Christian Aid and KMS particularly on resilience building using climate information in Mbeere on resilience building using climate information.
