Like in many parts of Africa, women’s participation in peace building in Marsabit County, Northern Kenya has been reportedly low. Although a lot has been said on their need to participate, scanty research has been done to establish whether the women have the required capacity to contribute meaningfully. The overall aim of this research was to establish the women’s capacity in peace building and the extent to which it influenced their participation.
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.
