General Council Meeting 16th Nov 2012

REPORT FOR THE KENYA CLIMATE CHANGE WORKING GROUP GENERAL COUNCIL MEETING HELD ON 16TH NOVEMBER, 2012 AT

VENUE: UFUNGAMANO HOUSE, NAIROBI-KENYA.

1.0 INTRODUCTION

After the Kenya Climate Change Working Group was formed, formerly, in March 29th 2009 at the Lenana Conference Centre, an interim board was elected along 8 thematic Groups, and a Road to Copenhagen leader. The most urgent responsibility was to come up with the rules and regulations for the Working Group for members to discus and endorse. Once the rules were drafted they were not given to members for endorsement. Further, the National Steering Committee developed interest in a multiplicity of roles in the working group. The members were not at all involved in making the highest decisions as was anticipated, with most of the principles of engagement being flouted by the NSC. Technical work and systems of operation were being ‘established’ in favour of the NSC. This got worse in 2011, especially after NSC allowed the registration of KCCWGA; and the interim Officials took advantage of that to control most operations in their favour.

Based on the above very brief problem definition in KCCWG, and other not discussed matters, a large number of members resolved to hold a special council on specific agenda, as the Kenya Climate Change Working Group, without invoking the Association. The broad Objective of the General meeting was to ‘retrace where the working group missed the step towards good governance’ and proper leadership and coordination. This was viewed, by many members contributing to the debates that prevailed, as the need for KCCWG to discuss and agree on how, and by who, will the network be governed, and then elect a leadership, based on some predefined criteria, to ensure that there is good governance, transparency and accountability, and the separation of powers between the various organs.

A planning committee composed of members of KCCWG called a general members council to respond to the above need, and the to help KCCWG to regain its key role as the National Civil Society Advocacy Network in Climate Change in Kenya.

The council, attended by 176 participants drawn from NGOs, CBOs and Faith based organizations discussed the failures of KCCWG and as a way forward laid down strategies on the way they would like KCCWG run so as to undertake its mandate in achieving its set goals

The objectives of the council meeting were agreed to be the following

(i) A brief background information about KCCWG

(ii) Presentation and discussion on the governance structure for KCCWG

(iii) Election of the National Committee and technical team to discharge specific mandates

(iv) Count Down to COP18: Launch of the Civil Society Position for COP18

(v) Way Forward.

2.1 ACTIVITIES

2.1.1 SESSION ONE – Moderator – Ochieng Khairallah- CEO, Citizens Coalitions for Constitutional Culture

2.1.1.1 Welcome remarks

The meeting began at 0915 Hrs with a prayer from one of the delegates followed by the national anthem. Mr. Khailara the moderator for the morning session introduced all the participants delegates/Representatives from different counties which included, Nairobi, Central, North Eastern, Upper Eastern, Lower eastern, Coast, North Rift, Western, Nyanza and South Rift; reflecting the different regions of Kenya.

The facilitator observed that KCCWG, right from inception, was to be a people sensitive and people driven network; and that its vision, centered on the need to collectively act together and that the importance of the council was because KCCWG was slipping off the original path and urgent measures were required to secure it again. The delegates then, were there as the owners of KCCWG and they had the mandate to streamline issues together to forge a way forward. In the spirit and letter of the new constitution, the supreme authority was vested in the people. It recognizes that we should always ensure the people own the organization.

The programme for the day was discussed and agreed upon.

2.1.1.2 Brief highlight about KCCWG since inception- Gains, Challenges, Proposed Way Forward- By Samson Malesi (Coordinator Kenya Water and Sanitation Network-KEWASNET)

Samson Malesi began by thanking all the delegates for finding it important to attend the meeting. He noted that simple things can be done poorly. In explaining the original concept of the working group, he said that KCCWG began in 2009 with organizations here in Nairobi that worked in different sectors. In the year 2009 there was a global focus on climate change, with the emergence of climate change issues and therefore the need for people coming together in addressing the climate change effects and enhance participation in the climate change global arena.

Previously there had been two main groups i.e Kenya Climate Forum (KCF) and Climate Change Consortium of Kenya (CCCK), working on climate change issues in Kenya. They then did not see the need of two consortia addressing the same issues since that would lead to competition hence divergence and lack of proper impact. The spirit that time was simple i.e Come together and work together (unity).

Difficulties emerged due to a number of reasons including the founder syndrome, members not implementing the working groups’ activities, bad governance among others.

For those who have been following KCCWG issues, he noted, there have been questions raised about Governance and the representation of the group and as a solution to those problems we would like to initiate a process where members are involved in the activities of the working group.

In conclusion he noted further that change is persistent but we should desire to be the change we would like to see.

2.1.1.3 Identifying the key issues from KCCWG and where we departed from the principles – Joseph Ngondi (Coordinator KCCWG) and Sydney Quantai, Indigenous people/ Pastoralist communities

Besides is Mr Joseph Ngondi giving a brief overview about KCCWG since inception.

The number of the people expected for the meeting had almost double- 100 was expected but over 150 participants were present. He further sincerely thanked the people for the inspiration in seeing how things need to be done, how they need to be governed and how to proceed.

In tracing the origin of KCCWG, the COP12 held in Nairobi in 2006 had inspired many CSOs to give Climate Change some emphasis. After formation of KCCWG, the first mandate of the interim national steering team was to come up with rules and regulations to govern the network. The council had found the need for technical work and coordination of the network, and had seconded Joseph Ngondi to work with NSC, partners and members to come up with a viable network.

Some of the principles KCCWG was to follow included that all people were to be equal, will be inclusive, will follow the principle of transparency and accountability and united by the purposes of Climate Change advocacy.

At the beginning members met frequently to consult but that stopped. Members had requested to meet even if there was no financial support! Most wanted to interrogate what was happening, as they had been isolated in a number of ways.

While the thematic groups had been formed purposefully to inform policy and advocacy, they had also become governance units for KCCWG, which was not reflecting the council (member’s wishes). The council’s mandate was neglected as the highest decision-making body of the working group. When members complained, they were further isolated (removed from the google group and other activities).

However, one of the major achievements of KCCWG was the Climate Change Authority Bill, 2012, which had been read in parliament the previous month. It had quite a great support from the PANERECC through the good relationships they had developed with the members of parliament. There was, therefore, need to retain the good image of KCCWG among all actors, including partners.

As a way forward, he noted, the resolutions from the council meeting should envisage the future of KCCWG in terms of Governance and representation of members.

Sydney Quantai, a representative of Indigenous people/ Pastoralist communities also reiterated that the people of Kenya have the right to make decisions and the representatives in the meeting were the owners of the group and therefore any work or any process identified with the group should be in full knowledge of the members. He said that every member has the right to access information about the group and it should not be a certain cocoon that does things its own way. He also observed that, when we allow four people to register an organization that derives its mandate from the members, things can’t be done well due to the self interests. In charting a way forward, he said that the meeting should achieve common objectives by ensuring that an all-inclusive organization is restructured.

Plenary Discussions

Different members participating in the council were allowed to express their concerns about the ‘KCCWG we want’. These included participants from ACTS!, Kitui, Vihiga, Kitui, Kisumu, Embu, Lamu, Mombasa and Narok counties. The following were the main points as highlighted by the members:

This photo shows Joan Kariuki of ACTS making her brief comments about the issues in KCCWG and suggestions on the best way forward

  • KCCWG had deviated from its key mandates since its calling for awareness creation, capacity building and advocacy was poorly coordinated and access to information was poor. Immediately KCCWG departed from its objectives, especially when it became an association, members e.g ACTS and others were unable to work with it. The meeting therefore was long overdue to enable the members to express their thoughts about the group. Many members e.g ACT needed an advocacy network that they could work with and therefore they felt frustrated that KCCWG Association was not able to work with them. (A representative of ACTS recalled a scenario whereby she requested KCCWG officials to allow three representatives from ACT to take part in a hearing in Kisumu without even any financial support and they could not listen to them).

     

  • On the registration of KCCWG as an association, the meeting was informed that ACTS does not work with associations and therefore they are locked out in terms of membership hence working together and technically frustrated. The introduction of allowances for officials was also one of the major setbacks of KCCWG since people have been fighting to participate in activities so that they can get paid. As a way forward it was recommended that the meeting should address the issues of conflict of interest in KCCWG as well as its governance.

     

    Besides is Mr Okong’o from Kisumu County making a contribution to the discussions about KCCWG. He also proposed more grassroots activities as opposed to just talking during meetings.

  • Members did not know what was happening. KCCWG should reach areas like VihigaCounty; and should find credible people to lead the working group in a transparent way.
  • The biggest challenge that KCCWG has had in achieving its objectives is the numerous talk shows without any actions hence not addressing the issues of climate change on the ground. As a way forward Climate hearings are essential but a lot of follow ups need to be done to transform what is said into action. There should be field work more than talk shows.
  • There was an urgent need to get to the bottom of the issues raised about KCCWG since it was clear that there were no deliverables so far. Professionalism was essential in KCCWG. There had been so much time lost to have such a meeting of ultimate importance to solve the problems in KCCWG. Why did people allow things to happen in the wrong way? If the leaders there were able to invite the members in the meeting of this nature, then a resolution must be achieved.
  • Above are some of the participants contributing to the discussions about KCCWG.

  • The members were there as liberators and ambassadors of the people out there and therefore the resolutions from the meeting will be the voice of all the members.

     

  • The outcome of this meeting should be respected by all.
  • KCCWG, since its inception, was a loose network. After the registration nobody knows the structure and people are not informed of what is happening. The approach of leadership should be bottom up and not top bottom so as to run the mandate of the organization smoothly.
  • The issue of allowances has led to the NSC taking up the mandate of the secretariat of which should not be the case. Action on the ground is crucial for all success, so that be avoid a lot of meetings in big hotels to invest in more field activities than meetings, where more resources should be put for actual work on the ground. He also said that the members were ready to be called for a meeting even at Uhuru Park rather than spending a lot of money in big hotels.
  • Below is Mr Mrema contributing to the discussions

  • Climate change impacts are evident in Lamu county and environmental Conservation is critical. Climate injustices and the loss of indigenous livelihoods were rampant and therefore the need for concerted effort at Lamu Port. As a way forward there was a dire need in educating people on climate change issues and environmental conservation in Lamu and this would be achieved by a group that is missioned to achieve its objectives.
  • The biggest challenge we are facing in KCCWG was leadership and the question members should ask themselves is what the wrangles are all about. We do not need meetings in Nairobi and therefore there is need of a structure that is inclusive of the people on the ground.
  • The issues raised are very clear and the legal status of KCCWG should be re-examined and the need of a constitution that is ratified by the general council. The registration of KCCWG as an association was a faulty action and system since the questions also remain who are the members and who elected the purported officials? As a way forward there was need to conduct elections properly and also take the instruments of the organization in the right direction.

2.1.1.4 Climate Governance, Best practice and Role of the Civil Society- Judy Ndichu- Transparency International/Climate Governance Network.

The topic was discussed with the participation of members. The following points were emphasized:

  • Indicators of bad governance in any organization include lack of information, individual interests, lack of proper networking and lack of transparency.
  • Corruption is the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. It was important for members to play their role in addressing the issues KCCWG was facing since that was the first step in bringing change. Corruption undermines the quality of work and therefore it revolves around how we report back to our donors or partners. There was limited number from the membership of KCCWG who participate in the hearings, and they were not communicated well.
  • Towards reviving KCCWG, members should also look back to their individual organizations and therefore we need to be proactive and organized as the projects and policies are being developed. Members need to share views and since they are the watchdogs they should protect their organizations.
  • Principles of good governance include transparency, accountability, independence, integrity and capacity. With the experience from KCCWG there was the urgent intervention to stop fighting and solidify the role of CSOs.

 

2.1.2 SESSION TWO – Moderator – Michael Kittivo-Caritas Kenya

Besides is Mr Kittivo from Caritas Kenya, moderating the governance discussion and election sessions, making a point during the meeting.

Caritas is a faith based organization that works within the world poor in over 169 countries. On the agenda of the day, the outcomes of the meeting will be guided by the key deliverables identified earlier. He pointed out that there was a need to look at climate change solutions from a given philosophy. The facilitator underlined the quote that; ‘let others lead small lives and not you, let others discuss small issues and not you; let others give their future to others and not you’. He then introduced panelist from key sectors to give their views on proper networking and advocacy in Civil Society.

2.1.2.1 Networking and Advocacy in Civil Society: Views from Key sectors:

2.1.2.1.1 Youth – Brief discussion by Kamau Waithaka

He said that KCCWG does not include the youth and as the youth they have had challenges with it. The sole objective of KCCWG was to work together but of late governance issues accrued as a result of legality, transparency and accountability, preventing it from discharging its mandate. In the 21st century such issues should not be coming up from a network that was mandated to fight for the rights of the vulnerable.

He suggested that in making KCCWG an acceptable network, issues can be resolved from within or from without and with the meeting to be held on 21st September, 2012 which does not have an agenda on the elections, members can raise the issues of transparency and accountability on the AOB. The minutes can be ratified by all the members and if they do not honor the issues raised measures can be taken from there to remove them from office.

2.1.2.1.2 Gender – Geoffrey Kimiti, IEWM

Besides is Mr Kimiti discussing gender and advocacy in Climate Change advocacy

Kimiti began by saying that IEWM has been engaging with KCCWG since inception and way back in 2010. They have been working on gender and climate change. He further said that a working group on gender should be one of the issues that KCCWG should have tackled since IEWM have had certain expectations on policy, climate change and gender in enhancing women and youth in climate change dialogue.

In giving his concerns about KCCWG, he reiterated that three years after the birth of KCCWG, the governance mechanism is not well articulated. Lack of proper participation and transparency are still issues revolving around the group. He further said that from his experience gender has not been a critical issue in KCCWG. As a way forward Kimiti said that if civil societies need to be focused, they have to be accountable to everybody that they represent.

2.1.2.1.3 Faith-based Organizations – Caritas Meru, Robert Gichunge

From his experience with KCCWG, Gichunge said that it had lacked a framework that would drive the core mandate of the group. The process of KCCWG establishment was not well understood. As Faith Based organizations Gichunge said that they would like to associate themselves with an organization that accommodates all the people and addresses the needs of the mandate of the people that it represents.

2.1.2.1.4 Indigenous peoples/Pastoralist Communities- Sidney Quntai

Besides is Sidney Quntai making a presentation on the need for indigenous people and the vulnerable to be supported by the climate change networks

According to Sydney, it was the people to decide how they wanted to be managed and they can’t postpone problems or run away from their responsibilities. He further pointed out that members have been quiet and there was the urgency of doing things right by first ratifying a constitution that is all inclusive since the members were sober and had the capacity to do it. As indigenous communities, Sydney hammered that they can only work with an organization that addresses the needs of the vulnerable and not personal benefits.

2.1.2.1.5 Facilitating a Credible Network – Mithika Mwenda (PACJA)

Besides is Mithika Mwenda discussing the need for an effective and people sensitive national network on climate change, to enhance the representation of the people’s voices at national level.

It is a really trying moment for KCCWG and most people have been longing to have such a meeting to express their views since many of them had also raised their issues on KCCWG. He further noted that frustrations have been there for the networks and all of us had the responsibility of interrogating themselves of their contributions and recognize the need to come up with a solution to address the problems of KCCWG. The initial good intensions were hijacked to satisfy non-core objectives; leading to poor partnership, perpetuating the phenomenon of exclusivity and cycle of weak institutions the problem exacerbated through formalization of group, the purpose was good, but was totally abused by some members.

There was resultant manipulation, lack of accountability; ignorance of members concerns, lack of transparency and accountability. Civil society should take advantage of democratic space to engage in policy issues and steer the development process. Conflict of structures, the steering, committees, co-ordinator/members has been a major.

PACJA would only play a facilitative role at the African level and one of the issues that PACJA looks at is transparency and inclusiveness. He acknowledged all those who had found time to come to help solve the problem. Kenya had a good constitution, which citizens could make good use of. PACJA would like to see a civil society that was pro-poor, people centered and responsive to sound ways of working, to link the country with the continent and the climate justice efforts globally, hence need to come up with a sustainable framework to govern KCCWG.

2.1.2.2 Presentation and Discussion of proposed KCCWG Governance Structure – Joseph Ngondi

He noted that it was through a proper governance structure within KCCWG that it can be a vibrant network. The team that was working on the convening of the meeting had proposed a governance structure and therefore it was for the members present to discuss, agree and approve on the acceptable structure. – Several organs were proposed- Annual General meeting/members council, aboard; secretariat and the member. Volunteers could be used to support in the secretariat as the network runs its activities.

To come up with technical documents for the council approval, after a given duration, there would be need for a technical team. The team could work for 3 months, up to, say, February 2013. Some of the deliverables would be:

1. Finalize the governance structure

2. Finalize the operational framework/Constitution and

3. Draft an advocacy strategy

This should lead to a fully-fledged and effective network. Elections could be every to enable a rotational leadership and live organs.

Members discussed and agreed on the following:

i. A national committee composed of representatives from the proposed regions of Kenya

ii. A technical team composed of appointed organizations/members with the ability to give technical inputs to the documents and organs as they emerge, and the processes

iii. A secretariat

iv. The members of KCCWG.

2.1.2.3 Elections: Endorsing Election procedure and election of Interim National Committee – Ochieng Khailara, Citizens Coalitions for Constitutional Culture

Going by the proposed governance structure and the way forward as proposed and agreed, an equal representation across the country buy the delegates were chosen during the meeting. Regions met on their own, discussed and nominated the interim representative from their region. Below was the outcome of the regional elections:-

2.2.1.4 Count Down to COP18- Launch of Civil Society Position- Paul Okong’o

Besides is Mr Okong’o presenting the Civil Society position for COP18 during the General Council.

In launching the African Civil Society Position for COP 18, Okong’o Highlighted this year advocacy: ‘OUR ACTION OUR SURVIVAL’ followed by the message to the Annex II countries: WE BEAR THE CLIMATE CHANGE BUT THEY ARE NOT OF OUR MAKING’. On officially launching the document Okong’o said that it was time to equate burdens with Actions. He applauded PACJA for its credible work in ensuring that the voice of the African people is heard at the international arena. He requested the representatives of different sectors to continue supporting PACJA taking advantage of it secretariat based in Kenya.

Mr. Okong’o reiterated PACJA for last year, and the Great Caravan “COP 17”, registered his appreciation. “Youth” performances was commendable; and African voice was well articulated.

3.0 WAY FORWARD AND CONCLUSION -By Samson Malesi

Mr Samson Malesi of KEWASNET is seen emphasizing a point as he gave the way forward during the Council meeting.

Samson Malesi gave the strategic way forward. He noted that the Issues brought forward at plenary, as issues to be addressed were as a result of failures in our former Association. He defined the roles of the technical team as oversight responsibility against deadly need to capitalize on external factors. The technical team will sit and define terms of reference to exercise its mandate guided by the discussions of the General Council Meeting. Clear Timelines will be set for the next General meetings and on the sidelines there will be presentation of the Outcome of COP 18 to be held in Doha, Qatar from 26th November to 9th December, 2012.the technical committee will also provide technical documents crucial in running the organization. The technical documents will include issues of grassroots representation as well as regional work for everyone to be involved in running KCCWG. The TOR also will describe how different levels of governance will link with the secretariat. He assured the Council that the mandate given to them will be administered.

These included:

i. Finalizing the governance structures and roles of each organ

ii. Draft constitution/rules and regulations for the working group

iii. Engage with other actors and partners

iv. Organize an all-inclusive Council in February 2012- if political situation will allow,

The Moderator thanked participants for show of solidarity through attendance and the meeting was officially closed with a word of prayer from one of the participants. The meeting ended at 1600Hrs.
