CARE KENYA PROGRAMS
Food, Nutrition Security
and Climate Change
CARE Kenya’s Food and Nutrition Security and Climate change program seeks to empower vulnerable rural communities and enhance their food and nutrition security and resilience and adaptation to climate change through various multi-pronged approaches including food security and economic development, water for multiple uses, disaster risk reduction, community based climate change adaptation and agricultural value chains making the markets work for the poor.
This program implements interventions that address diverse livelihood needs of different segments of the target populations. The needs range from inadequate water, hygiene and sanitation services, food insecurity and low income.
In rural, remote and semi-arid regions where living conditions are deplorable and unfavourable, CARE Kenya has strived to address the underlying causes of poverty by actively involving the local communities and stakeholders to finding sustainable solutions to their own problems and needs. Relevant interventions are being rolled out to mitigate effects of drought, hunger, climate change and environmental degradation as well as enhancing disaster risk reduction.
