2. The Migori County Climate Change Steering Committee.
3. The Migori County Climate Change Planning Committee.
4. The Climate Change Fund Board, Fund Administrator, and their support staff.
5. Migori County Climate Change Committee (an intergovernmental committee).

4. Migori County Climate Change Policy and Strategic Action Plans.
5. The National Climate Change Policy.
6. The National Climate Change Act.
At the end of this training, Migori County is expected to meet some of the donor funding requirements but above all, the County is expected to have a team prepares to help operationalizing, managing and evaluating with corrective measures, all the grassroots initiatives for mitigating and helping adapt to changes caused by temporary and permanent Climate variations.
What will the people of Migori County expect?
1. Proliferation of information on Climate change.
2. Initiatives to mitigate impacts of climate change like provisions of water in hard hit areas(solar powered boreholes et al).
