Resume:

The development objective of this intervention is to improve livelihoods in the Kenema district through bottom-up participatory engagement in climate-sensitive Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) governance. This is achieved by conducting participatory climate risk assessments with focus on WASH in selected communities in the Kenema district thus it is possible to document the actual impact of climate change – immediate objective 1. Based on the assessment and pilot implementation of mutually supporting adaptation measures the intervention will raise awareness and demonstrate how the communities through low-cost measures are able to create the needed coping capacity towards the impacts of climate change on WASH – immediate objective 2.
