Målgrupper :

The primary target group and participants in this project are the CSOs working with climate change, the NDC and LEDS development process and financing in East Africa. The project will work with networks as well as individual CSOs directly in Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda. The primary target group is selected based on its power to influence the implementation of the policies and involving the needs of poor and marginalized communities. In all 3 countries, poor communities are affected by the consequences of climate change. Thus in the long run, the implementation of ambitious NDCs and LEDSs integrating a strong focus on poverty reduction is expected to benefit poor communities which is estimated to 81,7 million people in total for the 3 countries. The secondary target group is national, regional, and international decision-makers as well as relevant private sector actors. The secondary targets are the duty bearers whose decisions determine the course of development and allocate funds.
