Consultancy Opportunity: Development and Delivery of Nature Based Entreprises Training for Conservancies in Baringo Landscape

Posted on






The Kenya Wildlife Conservancies Association (KWCA) is a national landowner led membership organization, established in 2013 to serve the interests and collective voice of over 190 community and private conservancies.  KWCA works to create an enabling environment for conservancies to thrive by advocating for the right policies, laws and incentives and supporting them through information sharing, and capacity building. KWCA recognizes that conservancies represent a strong mechanism to promote wildlife stewardship and custodianship by indigenous people, local communities and landowners that share land with wildlife.

Despite the growth in conservancy numbers over the past decade, women are still majorly excluded from conservancy governance, management and economic value chains and benefits.  It is on this basis that KWCA and its Landscape Associations have trained their focus in promoting equitable benefit sharing among conservancies.

Baringo County Conservancies Association in its capacity as the regional association is committed to incorporating gender mainstreaming in its programming to achieve gender equality at the region and conservancy level and has achieved great progress in increasing women’s rights, and active engagement in conservancy governance, operations and access to benefits.  Specifically, a noticeable number of women are increasingly taking on leadership roles in conservancy governance and management as board members, managers, and rangers. Similarly, more women are also engaging with various income generating activities including artifacts, bead works, selling of honey and its products.

While significant progress has been made in integrating women in conservancy governance, management and economic value chains, majority of them still lack the knowledge and skills necessary to efficiently scale production of their enterprises and optimally tap into local, regional and international markets. Inability to access financial resources to support their business is also a pain point.

Against this background, KWCA and BCCA are seeking to recruit a suitable consultant to curate and deliver a training on nature-based enterprises targeting women in conservancies within Baringo Landscape.
