This study was commissioned by the Centre for Governance and Development (CGD) to assess the gender dimensions and implications of coal mining in Mui Basin, Kitui County. Situated within the dynamics of emerging extractive industry in Kenya, it was tailored to become a case study for promoting gender mainstreaming in the sector. It was carried out in the four mining zones of Mui Basin namely: Block A (Zombe), Block B (Mutito), Block C (Mui) and Block D (Karung’a) areas. A mixed method approach involving quantitative and qualitative data collection was used.
The objective of the “One UN” is to improve the impact, coherence, efficiency, effectiveness and positioning of the UN system in Kenya to enable it better assist the country to meet the MDGs and Vision 2030. This will be achieved through One Programme, One Budgetary Framework, One Office, One Leader and Communicating as One.
