Knowledge Management Programme

Through this programme, FIDA Kenya seeks to deliberately contribute to a body of knowledge in the women’s rights movement. Through a thorough analysis of the Constitution, national developmental agenda set out in Vision 2030 and its operational framework in the MTP II, FIDA Kenya has invested in capturing ways in which these national priorities must promote women’s rights to be fully and meaningfully realized. Most importantly, a reflection and external environmental analysis process has been institutionalized to continuously inform the strategic management and response systems in the organization. With a rapidly shifting context in which women’s rights language has been appropriated in policy sites, there is need to harness the level of institutional alertness so that concrete actions and accountabilities for women accompany such policy commitments. The organization is alive to the fact that emerging developmental agreements both nationally, continentally and internationally have to some extent reneged and reversed women’s rights language neutralising their intended impact. Thus, in this phase, FIDA Kenya seeks to reclaim the centrality of rights language accompanied with concrete actions that advance rights. This is ultimately to ensure that development debates and decisions strengthen different dimensions of women’s autonomy to advance women’s rights and gender equality.
