Landscape Learning Journey

The Horn of Africa Climate Change Programme (HoA-CCP) is a regional project working in 6 countries with the aim to showcase the potential for climate resilient communities and businesses in selected landscapes.

Horn of Africa Climate Change Programme (HoA-CCP)

The Climate Change Programme at the Horn of Africa Regional Environment Centre & Network (HoA-REC&N) aims to both increase the adaptive capacity of the most vulnerable communities in the Horn of Africa to the shocks of climate change, and mitigate against its impacts.

By promoting sustainable and participatory interventions, building capacity and investing in research, the Programme will improve livelihoods and food security across the Horn of Africa, and support environmental conservation.

Landscape Learning Journey

CDI supports HoA-REC&N in the implementation of the Climate Change Programme with a specific focus on capacity development. This component of the project is called: “the Landscape Learning Journey” in which a selected group of facilitators from the six countries jointly embark on a journey in which they are empowered to enhance the resilience of their landscapes. This requires critical knowledge, skills and attitude on topics and landscape themes underlying landscape governance processes.

Throughout this learning journey the facilitators carry out various activities:

  1. They will visit and learn from each other’s landscapes in six countries in the Horn of Africa: Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, South Sudan, Djibouti and Somalia.
  2. Besides these field visits, in total six learning events will be organized around a central theme around landscape governance. During these events the facilitators critically reflect on their designed landscape intervention, apply various tools to their landscape and will work on their action plans.
  3. Online learning & exchange: in between the learning events, the facilitators share their progress on the “Landscape Learning Journey Platform”. This online place allows facilitators to share documents, photos and have discussions.
