ELECTION ANTICIPATION ACTION (EAA) and ANTICIPATION HUMANITARIAN ACTION (AHA) - Uasin Gishu County
The EAA project was supported by STARTFUND through ChristianAid while the AHA was supported by Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe. With regards to the 2022 General Elections period, and especially during the by-elections across the country before the election, incidences of inter-communal conflict and displacement, were observed in many parts (Marsabit, Baringo, Wajir, and Isiolo amongst others). Whilst the priority was to support peace-building and prevention efforts, previous outbreaks of violence have demonstrated the importance of planning for potential humanitarian response activities.
Based on the above and Uasin Gishu County being identified as one of the hot spot areas, there was potential for humanitarian consequences requiring a response from ADS North Rift and other partners in the run-up to the election and the post-election period. As such, ADS North Rift through the projects implemented preventive measures to prepare for the anticipated impact that these events could have on the humanitarian situation before, during, and after the elections.
The interventions therefore aimed at providing e an opportunity for ADS-NRR to work on mitigation, preparedness and response, including prepositioning of critical Food items (FIs) and Non-Food Items (NFI) meant to reduce some of the adverse effects of the violence if it occurred, 1,000 vulnerable people were targeted to be supported.
We achieved the following during this time:
