Climate Change

Climate Change is a key development challenge that has significant effects on sustainable development in Machakos County and the Country at large. Machakos County is faced with an accelerating climate crisis (Machakos County, 2023). Drought, heat stress, diminishing water resources and increased temperatures leading to water scarcity are the most problematic climatic hazards in the County. Citizens of Machakos County are often directly dependent on natural resources to sustain their livelihood with agricultural farming as the principal livelihood employing 73% of the population and contributing 70% of household incomes (Machakos County, 2023). The impact of climate change is already putting stress on these resources. Food shortage, increased food prices and scarcity of water are just some of the consequences of extreme weather events such as drought and flooding.
