CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION AND ADAPTATION
Somalia is characterized by high temperatures, low average rainfall and perennial droughts which has perennially affected the livelihoods of inhabitants with more damage to the vulnerable peoples Increasing persistent drought and failed rains over the past decade have had devastating impacts on already degraded lands. These conditions and dependency on rain-fed agriculture leaves a majority of citizens in Somalia highly vulnerable to climate change. Poverty levels are generally high. Access to food is limited leading to high process of available food. To mitigate the challenges associated to harsh climatic conditions, KAHRDO works to promote integration of environmental reclamation and conservation initiatives to disability and inclusive development programmes as a strategy to create safety nets for the vulnerable peoples and the community. The key areas of our focus include;
Environmental Conservation: Our goal is to strengthen respect for the environment in the target communities so that they are increasingly adapting and spreading environmental conservation methods that are safe to the vulnerable peoples. We work through emphasize more on tree planting in the communities, establishment of community seed banks and help facilitate communities to plan and run environment related activities e.g. Tree planting days KAHRDO highly involve the vulnerable peoples who will be required to give information on the same. The vulnerable peoples and marginalizes groups source for specific environment conservation concerns that will enable efficient dissemination of the environmental conservation knowledge.
Water Harvesting And Conservation: Scarcity of water is one of the most serious problems experienced by the vulnerable peoples and Disability peoples and their communities. Rainfall is erratic and natural water sources like rivers are few; many communities are far from water sources. This leads to people, especially PwDs and the aged, walking long distances in search of water for livestock, crop irrigation and domestic use. KAHRDO trains PWDs groups on simple and affordable techniques of water harvesting. We also support drilling of boreholes and avail portable waters when need be.
Renewable Energy Project: KAHRDO works towards promoting access to clean and affordable green energy sources by the poor households in communities. The projects include Solar energy, access and energy saving cook-stoves production and promotion in neighborhood communities to improve living conditions for PWDs and families and vulnerable peoples .
