TOR: Food Security and Access to Land for Women in Baringo and Samburu Counties

Gender inequality when it comes to access to land usage is a challenge especially in pastoraists communities. The impact of natural disasters such as drought usually affect the ability of other parts of the county to guarantee food security for themselves and therefore slowing down general efforts on poverty reduction and crisis prevention. These disasters also reduce land rights and access by all community members, especially women. To improve food security and active involvement of women in food security issues, KAS is working with the state and non-state actors to promote and strengthen participatory political environment and subsequently sound public policy frameworks in the target counties in respect to improving food security. KAS Kenya therefore seeks a consultant to undertake an assessment of food security and access to land for women in Baringo and Samburu Counties so as to identify gaps in relation to land access and how it affects food security.

With devolution, counties continue to champion for progressive increase in their allocation of national share of revenue. This effort is augmented on the need to promote social-economic transformation among people living/residing in these counties. While the function of public affairs at the county level lies with the County Governments, the role of the civil society organizations as watchdogs, to hold the respective county governments is seemingly weak especially in respect to community based organizations that are domiciled within the counties, constituency and in wards.

Progressive development of CIDP, which is the county’s implementation blue print, is crucial in ensuring that matters socio-economic and political developments are well addressed.
