Gender Analysis – USAID/Kenya

Share This Page

Banyan Global is implementing the Gender Integration Technical Assistance (GITA) II Task Order, which provides on-demand, rapid-response, short-term technical assistance (STTA) to United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Missions and Bureaus across multiple sectors and in crisis and non-crisis settings.

Under GITA II, Banyan Global is partnering with USAID/Kenya and East Africa (KEA) to conduct a gender analysis for the 2020-2025 Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS). Using Banyan Global’s tested gender analysis research tools, a three-person research team will identify macro-level gender advances, inequalities, constraints, and opportunities and provide specific recommendations on how USAID/KEA can achieve greater gender integration within the following thematic areas: 1) reducing chronic vulnerability; 2) investing in the well-being of Kenyans; 3) improving social systems (such as governance, markets, and devolution); and, 4) regional impact. The analysis will address GBV prevention and response, women’s economic empowerment, private sector engagement, and self-reliance as key cross-cutting themes.
