Description and results


This initiative is a sub-project of the Democratic Governance Fund and appears separately to denote that this component is a grant to the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women). This project is designed to respond to immediate needs associated with implementing gender considerations of the new Constitution. This project aims to facilitate coordination amongst key stakeholders from both civil society and in the legislation process and provide technical analysis and input for the promotion of gender equality in Kenya. UN Women is working with civil society, women movements and media to ensure citizen input and participation in the passage of the Affirmative Action Bill.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: better coordination amongst key players in gender equality issues; consensus amongst Kenyans on the content of the Affirmative Action Bill; and increased awareness of how the new Constitution impacts women's inclusion in political decision-making.
