What women and men want: Considering gender for successful, sustainable land management programs: Lessons learned from the Nairobi Water Fund

Key messages

  • Women and men having different access to assets results in barriers when implementing sustainable land management (SLM).
  • This can be ‘corrected’ by building understanding of gender dynamics amongst extension agency and project implementation staff.
  • Riparian zone management is the most challenging and least adopted SLM practice.
  • Riparian buffer zones are a high priority for both the Nairobi Water Fund (NWF) and farmers’ livelihoods.
