ILGRP Project Empowers Kenyan Civil Society Organizations for Effective Parliamentary Oversight.

The Inclusive Legislatures for Gender Responsive Policies (ILGRP) project, a collaborative initiative between African Centre for Parliamentary Affairs (ACEPA) and The Parliamentary Centre (PC) funded by Global Affairs Canada conducted a two-day training for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Kenya last week on approaches to effective engagement in the oversight process of Parliament.

Participants learnt how to apply gender impact assessment using gender-based analysis as a tool for promoting gender responsive oversight of implementation of laws and budgets. The workshop included practical sessions on translating the findings from Gender Impact Assessments into Parliamentary submissions in the form of memorandums, statements, petitions, questions as well as coming up with processes on engaging with Parliamentary Committees.

The trained CSOs will utilize the skills and approaches gained to include gender perspectives in oversight processes and to make submissions to the Parliament of the Republic of Kenya.
