The objective of this grant is to support the identification of climate
hazards and risk mitigation options to inform the proposed Kenya Marine
Fisheries and Socio-Economic Development (KEMFSED) project, both during its
current preparation phase, and implementation. The grant will support the identification of potential climate
change-related hazards to Kenya’s coastal communities in Kwale, Mombasa, Kilifi, Tana River, and Lamu counties, and their
livelihoods, and the coastal and marine ecosystems which they depend
on. The results will provide critical information to help
inform decision making at various levels, on several aspects including climate
smart adaptation options. The grant will also assess safety at sea aspects, and develop
recommendations on how the safety of especially artisanal fishing communities
can be improved in view of their increased vulnerability to more frequent,
variable, and intense weather events.
