At The Generation of Change, we endavour to ensure that we are at the fore front in coming up with initiatives that ensure we harvest as much water as possible during rainy sessions albeat in small ways in Mandera County. During rainy sessions, the county gets high volumes of water which sometimes lead to flooding and all this water goes to the river which also flood and wash river banks and pieces of lands aroud the rivers. This water finally drains to the ocean and doesnt benefit the residents of Mandera. The GCG thought it prudent to have a clear thematic initiative of coming up with locally led initiatives such as developing small dams and pans and also coming up with flood control intitiatives to reduce these effects
The prevention, management, mitigation and resolution of conflict require a well-coordinated and concerted effort by all actors and stakeholders involved in the conflict. GCG aspires to be a leader of regional peace and prosperity through constant engagement in dialogue efforts, post-conflict reconstruction and trauma healing.
The Generation for Change and Growth, GCG, NGO works in Kenya and Somalia in mobilizing communities, advocating for relevant climate response policy and legal frameworks, capacity building in confronting climate change. In these regions droughts, water scarcity, flooding along river basins during rains, disappearance of animal and plant species, conflicts over diminishing natural resources as well as the lack of appropriate policies at county level remain the main challenges. GCG has planned to confront these challenges using different approaches and a multi-stakeholder approach.
