Using the Law to Build Climate Resilience

Laws only make an impact when they are applied in the real world. Our two-and-a-half-year, $380,000 grant to Natural Justice aims to give communities a voice in major development and infrastructure projects where climate resilience is at stake. By applying provisions in new Kenyan climate laws, the effort focuses on increasing the capacity of communities to challenge and hold projects accountable. Natural Justice will collaborate with Friends of Lake Turkana, the Malindi Rights Forum, and Haki na Sheria Initiative.
