CLIMATE RESILIENCE AND ENVIRONMENT CONSERVATION PROGRAM

 

RELEVANCE TO GLOBAL GOALS

CRECP invented ANCRECC responds to the United Nations rallying call for sustainable growth and development to save our planet. It specifically responds to the overall vision of a green Kenya with a thriving ecologically sustainable economy and contributing well to the overall wellbeing of the planet.

Vision 2030 for Kenya

In order to achieve a middle-income and ecologically sustainable but industrialized Status by the year 2030, Kenya will need a workforce that has superb knowledge in climate mitigation strategies and superb technological skills. Since the key to mitigation of climate crisis relies heavily on advancement in technology to drive an ecologically sustainable industrial environment, future generations must be trained and indoctrinated from the very early childhood to love the environment, love technology, adopt a culture of sustainable living and use these skills to stay relevant to the ecological crises of the day and quickly solve problems.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals supported include; 

  • Goal 01, No Poverty
  • Goal 03, Good Health and Well Being
  • Goal 07, Clean Water and Sanitation
  • Goal 08, Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • Goal 09, Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
  • Goal 10, Reduced Inequalities
  • Goal 12, Responsible Consumption and Production
  • Goal 16, Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions

INTRODUCTION

The Climate Resilience and Environmental Conservation Program is a major national program created under the innovative partnership of Impactnet Africa and Youth for Better Kenya. Under this program, the youth of Kenya see it fit to have the national conversation about climate change intensified. The youth under this program innovate different unique solutions to respond to climate crisis in the Republic of Kenya. Such innovation includes working with international governmental, non-governmental or profit based programs to help fight the climate crisis, with efforts focused on the youth effort.

1.1 What inspired the Birth of CRECP?

At the recent 7th Annual Devolution Conference that happened in Makueni County, it became clear that Kenyans have to put a lot of effort or step the fight against climate change as its effects are ravaging parts of the country with relief help needed urgently to support regions like Northern Kenya.

In some parts of the country, unexpected and hard-to-predict heavy rainfalls are being experienced with flash floods. In some parts like Northwestern regions, Kenya is experiencing droughts. Such examples are the reasons why Kenya ought to take the fight for climate change seriously. The youth have to organically develop the inherent interest to combat climate change and lead the national efforts to reduce the ravishing effects that we are seeing right now.

1.2 Vision

To incorporate the African youth and innovation in the fight against climate change.

Mission

To be a leading program and nonprofit program that plays a critical role in engaging the African youth, using the latter’s ingenuity and zeal, to develop innovative solutions to take care of the climate crisis.

OBJECTIVES

  • Impart the knowledge of climate Resilience and Environmental Protection among children and youth, equip the youth with an environment caring conscience, and knowledge and skills to combat the climate crisis.
  • Be the loud voice of climate crisis among the youth in Kenya and Africa and push the government of the Republic of Kenya to act in implementing recognized global efforts to combat climate change.
  • To bring together all stakeholders and resources to support projects that address the challenges of climate change.
  • Begin and sustain a serious national conversation about empowering the youth to save future generations
  • To champion, speak out for, and constantly advocate for Sustainable Development and Sustainable selfless living among all stakeholders of society.
  • Deploy the remaining deferred part of the budget, to future conferences and technological startups that support mitigation efforts against climate change.

YOUTH EQUIPPING CYCLE

Impartation of Knowledge must involve all stakeholders. In order to achieve this, the discussion should be centered around equipping cycles that have been proposed by various experts within the United Nations and International Nonprofit programs dealing with this issue, with the solutions tailor-made to local needs, while still guaranteeing freedom to various approaches.

The knowledge given to the youth must come in two major cycles

  • Early Childhood Education Cycle
  • High School and College Education Cycle

Early childhood Education Cycle

Various approaches have been to determine what happens at this level, which includes Grade 1 through Grade 4, using Teacher-Centered, Media-Centered, Pupil-Centered, Project-Centered, and Montessori approaches. This implementation table, along with the PowerPoint, will be discussed in various breakout sessions in the afternoon during the conference. 

High School and College Cycle

This stage is a bit advanced, with the curriculum developed involving 4 Modules that define the first year to the final year. Such include;

  • Year /Module One: Basic Climate Change
  • Year / Module Two: Social and Environmental Soundness
  • Year / Module Three: Adaptation, Low Emission, and Land Use Planning
  • Year / Module Four: Carbon Measurement, Conversion, and Monitoring

TARGET AUDIENCE

At CRECP, we jointly recognize and appreciate that it’s the youth and children that can easily adopt these mitigative solutions and drive other sections of the local population towards full implantation of the strategies we come up with. Our target populations include the following

  • Stage 1- Children of between 4 and 17 years
  • Stage 2 – Youth of 18 to 40 years.

Areas where these populations are found majorly include

  • Stage 1 – Early Childhood Development (ECD), Primary and High Schools
  • Stage 2 – Colleges and Universities

A well detailed implementation plan is available for any parties interested.  Crecp.ke should be the available portal with all information on combating climate crisis.
