Kisumu County Unveils Climate Change Committees

Governor Anyangโ€™ Nyongโ€™o has launched the Climate Change and Environment Committees at the ward level to play a critical role in addressing the challenges of climate change in Kisumu County. The development of the Rapid Climate Change Act 2020, Nyongโ€™o noted, is one of the positive achievements the county has made to build a robust understanding of climate risk and uncertainty. โ€œThe Ward Climate Change Planning Committees are expected to encourage people to participate fully in the planning, budgeting, and implementation of local climate change and adaptation projects,โ€ Nyongโ€™o said. He further pointed out that climate change has had devastating effects on communities. Notably, Prof. Nyongโ€™o noted that the community members who understand these problems are the ones who can come up with homegrown solutions.

                    @saustine_lusanzu counties should borrow from this. By making the county a better place,overtime the whole country will be making great progress. A county can work independently too without relying on the "big fish".
