Future Yetu: Amplifying community voices for sustainable climate adaptation
Learn more about how a grant from Cities Alliance Innovation Programme, is helping residents of the Korogocho community in Nairobi, Kenya, to better understand, adapt and respond to the detrimental impacts of climate change.
With nearly 200,000 people living in a densely populated area, Korogocho is one of the largest informal settlements in Nairobi. Like many of the poorer urban residents of the Global South, the people of Korogocho are disproportionately vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. These impacts include frequent, low-level disasters that can cause disruptions in food and water supplies, reduced incomes, damaged homes and infrastructure, and diseases.
The Hope Raisers organization, together with the Nairobi County Environment department and support from the Cities Alliance Innovation Programme, is contributing to increase the awareness and knowledge on climate change risks and adaptation solutions through the use of digital storytelling in the community.
This 2-page report provides an overview of the project, its achievements and key lessons learned. It also describes further issues that the ongoing project should address in the next months.
