Welcome to Week 2

This video introduces the topics of Week 2, including cross-sectoral governance arrangements and innovation in climate adaptation governance.

Governance may be explained as the process by which actors formulate rules and guidelines that affect how a society (the people) behave. The process of governance helps us make rules that the population will follow. We provide an example from Kenya to show how and why.

Through governance, societies are able to self-organize by:

  • Making certain persons or institutions responsible for the welfare of the people
  • And secondly, these persons or institutions formulate rules that regulate how the people behave.

This week we will explore present strategies used by governments in response to the challenges.
