Project: Advancing Equitable Gender, Social and Power Norms in Community Conservancies
Period of Performance:
January 2021 - March 2022
RISE Competition Round 2:

Kenya Wildlife Conservancies Association (KWCA) is partnering with Fauna & Flora International, CARE Kenya, Centre for Rights Education and Awareness, and Taita Taveta Wildlife Conservancies Association to implement the project in Kenya: Advancing Equitable Gender, Social and Power Norms in Community Conservancies.

This project addresses GBV and ensures more equitable access to and control of natural resources in conservancies in Kenya by advancing equitable norms. To facilitate transformation and gender equality, KWCA and its partners adapts elements and tools of CARE International’s Social Analysis and Action model. The consortium provides training and safe spaces for KWCA and selected conservancy staff to identify and challenge harmful gender norms, and to help conservancies promote safe, equitable, and inclusive decision-making. With RISE funding, KWCA is also updating their gender strategy to address GBV and work with member conservancies to develop and roll out a safeguarding policy. Through these activities, this project is increasing consciousness of unequal norms and encourage conservancy staff to adopt and maintain positive changes in gender relations.
