GGP stands the Gender and Governance Programme. The GGP was developed as a follow up to the Engendering Political Process Programme implemented in 2002 to support women to participate actively in 2002 general elections.
The GGP was developed by different stakeholders comprising of women leaders and women centred civil society organizations. It is supported by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) and development partners: the Swedish International Development Agency, the Royal Netherlands Embassy, the Royal Norwegian Embassy and DFID.
The Gender and Governance Programme is in its third phase, and it is a multi-stakeholder programme formulated to deepen the gains of the Engendering Political Process Programme (EPPP) in ensuring that women issues remain relevant in the national politics. In addition, the programme was meant to support transformative leadership that delivers on gender equality across all levels of government. GGP was also geared towards strengthening women’s leadership within communities and at the national levels.
The overall goal of the GGP is to transform leadership and governance at all levels in Kenya in order to deliver on poverty reduction, access to basic needs and equality between and among persons.
