2012 • 3 years • Conservation & Sustainable Development

The Green Belt Movement is a Kenyan-based organization which works with local communities, particularly women, to conserve the environment and improve their livelihoods. The goal of this grant is to establish a training center in Kenya which will strengthen the role of women in natural resource management and climate change mitigation in three key watersheds in East Africa. The Green Belt Movement will provide training for women to improve their participation in environmental governance; increase skills in forest rehabilitation, sustainable agriculture, and protection of water sources; and improve access to economic opportunities associated with markets for small-scale clean technologies like solar lighting and clean cook stoves. In addition to training, Green Belt Movement will support the development of a regional network of women leaders engaged in conserving critical watersheds and mitigating climate change.
