GGRT 2015-2016


Description

PROJECT NAME: GOVERNORS’ GENDER ROUND TABLES (GGRT): ENABLING GENDER RESPONSIVE DEVOLUTION

DEVELOPMENT PARTNER: ACTION AID KENYA

YEAR: 2015-2016

CRAWN Trust Developed the GGRTs concept as a way of enhancing the participation of women and other marginalized groups in governance. The GGRT is a platform where grassroots women and marginalized groups from each ward in a county engage with the County Government to share their needs to ensure that the planning and distribution of the County resources is gender responsive and inclusive of other marginalized groups.

This has been successful in ensuring balanced and informed decision making by duty bearers. The GGRTs also provide an avenue for Governors and communities to share how devolution has impacted their lives positively and for duty bearers to reaffirm their commitment to gender equity. We have successfully launched the GGRTs in 3 counties.
