Full title: Community Based Adaptation to Climate Change, Sakai, Kenya.

Recognizing the high vulnerability of African countries to the impacts of climate change, the project "Integrating Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate Change into Sustainable Development Policy

Planning and Implementation in Eastern and Southern Africa" (ACCESA) was initiated by the United Nations Environment Programme with the support of the Global Environment Facility. 
The project was implemented by the centre for science and technology innovations together with the arid lands resource management project II and the Sakai community. 
The project provided support for community-level actions that enhance resilience to climate change in the short- and long-term.

In this documentary, Sakai community members highlight the changes they have observed and related problems, their activities on the adaptation project, preliminary and expected results, as well as key messages to the national and international community.
This video was produced by Cynthia Awuor with financial support from the International Institute for Environment and Development's (IIED's), Capacity strengthening for Least Developed Countries for Adaptation to Climate Change (CLACC) Fellowship Programme.
