Gender Governance Programme (GGP)

The Danida supported Kenya Governance Support Programme (2010-2015) has a strong focus on gender equality through the support to the Gender and Governance Programme III (GGP III) managed by UN Women.

GGP III represents the third phase of the Gender and Governance Programme launched in September 2004. The programme promotes equal opportunities and access to services for both men and women, addresses the need to include women’s issues in governance structures, and supports women’s leadership at national and local levels.

GGP III specifically focuses on providing technical support to government institutions and national gender institutions and organisations for the purpose of achieving equal access of men and women to goods and services, and civil society organisations in holding duty bearers accountable. Through specific and varied activities, GGP III contributes to engendered national and local institutional policies and legal frameworks; increasing women’s participation in governance at all levels; and supporting civil society in articulating women’s needs, demanding and influencing the delivery of equitable services.

The total Danida support to GGP III amounts to DKK 20 Million. GGP III is also supported by Norway, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), the Netherlands, Finland, Spain, the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and Germany. The GGP III has been extended until June 2013.
