The integrated initiative to combat food insecurity in lower eastern Kenya is part of the Integrated Food Security Programme and is implemented by ADS Eastern in partnership with Transform Aid international, Australia. The goal of this project is to promote integrated initiatives to combat food insecurity for sustainable reduction in poverty and hunger in Lower Eastern Kenya by July 2018. Specifically, the project aims at increasing crop and livestock productivity, vegetation covers as well as access to water among project beneficiaries. The project has also enhanced effective governance of CBOs to undertake effective planning and monitoring of interventions in their communities, empowering communities, including children, to be able to claim and defend their human rights through documenting, reporting and referral of cases of abuses and violations, and enhancing ADS Eastern Capacity to effectively deliver the Programme by June 2018. The project is in its second phase after a successful first phase which was implemented between 2012 and 2014. By the end of the project at least 35,000 community members in the will benefit from the different project interventions.
