Gold Star Kenya’s impactful Climate Action initiatives are designed to address the pressing challenges of climate change. Gold Star Kenya is dedicated to preparing and strengthening systems to effectively manage the effects of climate change through mitigation and adaptation. Here's a glimpse into some of the essential areas we focus on:
Strengthening Health Systems:
Strengthening healthcare systems to empower communities in mitigating the health risks associated with climate change is a critical endeavor that requires a multi-faceted approach. Resilient healthcare systems can empower communities to proactively address climate change's health risks, improving overall well-being.
Agro-Nutrition and Food Security:
With the changing climate characterized by prolonged droughts and flooding, we understand the importance of innovative solutions for maintaining nutrition and food security, especially for vulnerable groups. Gold Star Kenya is actively advocating for adopting modern farming techniques, enabling communities to adapt to water scarcity while ensuring an adequate supply of highly nutritious food and fresh vegetables. This approach curbs malnutrition, making communities more resilient in the face of climate-induced challenges.
Water and Sanitation Hygiene (WASH):
Ensuring access to safe water and promoting proper sanitation practices are crucial for community well-being. Gold Star Kenya's WASH activities focus on protecting natural water sources, a fundamental step in reducing waterborne and diarrheal diseases in communities.
