ActionAid Australia (AAA) commissioned an end-of-project evaluation for Gender Responsive Alternatives to Climate Change (GRACC) funded by DFAT, under the Gender Action Platform (GAP), and AAA. The two-year project (July 2017 – July 2019) was collaboratively designed and implemented with country partners in Cambodia, Kenya and Vanuatu. The overall project was managed by ActionAid Australia in partnership with global partners, Huairou Commission and Monash University Gender, Peace and Security Centre, ActionAid Cambodia, ActionAid Kenya (AAK), ActionAid Vanuatu and ActionAid International (AAI). Additional partners were numerous, identified as implementing partners which were beneficiaries of GRACC trainings as well as disseminating climate change/disaster risk response (CC/DRR) information. Strategic partners represented civil societies, county and national governments. Collectively, they used a gender responsive and human and women’s rights-based approach to CC/DRR.
The GRACC project in Baringo County, Kenya located in the Rift Valley occurred between June 2017 – May 2019. AAK and some of its partners have been working collaboratively in the region since 2012, building partnerships and empowering women primarily in Pokot communities whose livelihood is primarily pastoral (raising livestock). The GRACC project provided an opportunity to focus on climate change adaptation and protection issues and link women from local, national to global.
