The purpose of this publication is therefore to document what UN Women did to enhance women’s representation in the electoral processes leading up to the March 2013 General Elections in Kenya. The publication captures the great successes by UN Women, which ensured the attainment of gender equality and women’s participation in politics. It also lays out the facts and statistics on the representation of women throughout the various Parliaments of Kenya since independence in 1963 to the March 2013 General Elections.
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.
