UNESCO supports new Gender Research and Documentation Centre in Kenya

Signing of the MoU with the University of Nairobi and Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development

UNESCO has signed an agreement with the University of Nairobi and the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development in Kenya to establish a National Gender Research and Documentation Centre.

With UNESCO support this Centre will develop capacity for research and teaching on gender equality in Kenya and will link to other Centres throughout the Region to undertake large scale research projects. This research should help to develop more effective policies for gender equality and the empowerment of women.

The Centre will in particular be linked to UNESCO's Category II Centre on Women, Gender and Peacebuilding in the Great Lakes Region, based in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo
