How transparent is gender equality funding in Kenya and where do we go from here?
To ensure funding is best targeted to both meet identified gender priorities and to make societies more equal we need a clear picture of gender financing – which projects are being funded, by whom, with what aims and with what results.

The Gender Financing Project has mapped national and international funding for gender equality in Kenya. Our research examines how such information could be made more transparent and useful and offers some recommendations for improved co-ordination and allocation of gender equality funding in Kenya

Join our webinar to learn how the Kenyan government and international donors are funding gender equality in Kenya and where key stakeholders can work together to improve the transparency of this funding.

Following a brief presentation of the research findings, a panel including representatives from government, donor, and civil society organizations will discuss the issues they raise, the role of transparency, data and engagement, and actions to improve gender equality funding in Kenya. We welcome comments and questions from the audience, which can be submitted in advance or during the event via social media and our interactive chat.
