  • Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA-Kenya) in partnership with Oxfam is implementing a 3-year project on Women Land Rights for Inclusive Development and Growth in Africa (WIDGRA). The project is funded by the European Union and implemented in partnership with PROPAC ( Platforme Régionales des Organisations Paysannes d'Afrique Centrale) and PLAAS ( Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies) . The project has interventions targeting 8 countries in Africa. These are Kenya, Tunisia, Ethiopia, Malawi, Togo, Cameroon, Mozambique and South Africa.

    Expression of Interest (EOI) for Development of a National Shadow Report (Women Land Rights)

     

    Background

    The overall objective of the project is to ensure women’s access to and control over their land resources across Africa by supporting and enabling rural women’s voices; while the specific objectives are:

    • To hold the governments in the target countries and the Regional Economic Communities accountable on the implementation of relevant AU women’s land rights (WLR) instruments; and other relevant WLR policies and laws while monitoring the actions they take.
    • To empower rural women’s organizations to analyse, document and disseminate evidence on pronounced cases of missing WLR and action against the discriminatory land tenure systems and threats originating from LSLBIs.
    • Pan-African civil society is recognized for their leadership, knowledge and advocacy capacity on WLR by governments, RECs, AU and WLR experts. This objective aims to strengthen civil society, to monitor actions taken by governments in key countries, and Regional Economic Communities, and hold them accountable to implement relevant AU instruments. It further builds up the evidence base and facilitates the strengthening of women’s voices at community level in the face of discriminatory land tenure systems and LSLBIs.

    Within the first objective on monitoring WLR policy implementation, it is expected that CSOs gain the capacity to effectively monitor WLR instruments, laws and policies; and that they apply this capacity to make verified information available on the non-implementation of those frameworks. It is in this light that the project is seeking to develop country specific national shadow reports on implementation of the AU WLR instruments and other relevant WLRs laws and policies. These shadow reports will be drafted with a focus on Africa to evaluate progress in implementation over the last decade.

    The reflections from the shadow reports will enable CSOs to engage at different levels on advocacy and put pressure to duty bearers to implement progressive legislative and policy frameworks that facilitate ownership of land for women. It is intended that these reports will be disseminated at national, regional and continental spaces as part of an advocacy campaign.

    It is for this reason that FIDA Kenya is seeking to recruit consultants to develop national shadow reports for Kenya. The consultants will analyse the implementation of the four AU WLR frameworks by Kenya, review previous national progress reports with recommendations made on Kenya; identify main WLRs issues within the sub areas of the frameworks, review achievements thus, identify existing gaps and provide recommendations. The four frameworks below will undergo this analysis:

    1. Framework and Guidelines on Land Policy in Africa (F&G) very early talked about the second scramble of the continent – economic subjugation of the continent by global north and other entities.
    2. Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security – (VGGTs)
    3. Guiding Principles on Large Scale Land Based Investments.
    4. Maputo Protocol - (Protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa
