The Kenya4Resilience Consortium (K4RC) is a collaborative effort of the Members of Kenya for Resilience (K4R) community of practice (CoP) in Kenya. The K4R community of practice has been funded by the Swedish Mission Council (SMC) since inception in 2018 The idea to form a consortium has been conceptualized by the members of the K4R in their endeavour to scale up some of the good initiatives that require further engagement at different institutional arrangements. At the 2nd Africa Regional Workshop on Integrating and Measuring Resilience organised by SMC for its member organisation in Africa, the idea to develop the consortium was further deliberated on. A few member organisations of SMC decided to come together and embarked on the process of developing a proposal to establish a consortium.
The goal of the consortium is to ensure reduced disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural, environmental and spiritual capitals of persons and communities, while increasing their absorptive, adaptive and transformative capacities. To achieve this goal, three higher level outcomes were developed; Livelihoods secured and enhanced across different communities participating in the Kenya for Resilience (K4K) Consortium in Kenya; Learning, innovation and adaptive management enhanced within communities and civil society organisations in Kenya The Consortium generates understanding on the connections between conflict and resilience, in order to more effectively support resilience interventions in conflict-affected and fragile areas. The consortium will engage directly with groups representing 2000 households in Samburu and Kitui Counties, to learn together on the ways they cope with shocks and stresses in their daily lives and which mitigation, absorptive, adaptive and transformative strategies they employ to bounce back after these catastrophic events, including the most current Covid-19 pandemic.
The Founding members of this consortium are Children’s Mission Africa (CMA), the Salvation Army (TSA), International Aids Services Kenya (IAS-K), and Life & Peace Institute (LPI). The consortium is currently funded for three years with long-term ambition to undertake local resource mobilisation through, local foundations, Embassies and other bilateral aid agencies operating in Kenya and beyond. Children’s Mission Africa (CMA) is the K4RC (Consortium) Lead and staff will be based at their offices.
