"Oil Palm Farmers and Protecting the Environment"

Oil palm cultivation: An economic success at a high price

Two narratives dominate the debate on the expansion of the oil palm cultivation. The first narrative focuses on the destruction of forest or agroforestry systems and their transformation into oil palm monoculture plantations. It identifies the massive threat that this development deals to the environment’s capacity to preserve and provide biological processes and components of an ecosystem. The second narrative shows how oil palm cultivation improves the livelihoods of rural households by increasing their income and nutrition. Both narratives are supported by scientific evidence, and they need to be thought together when aiming to improve the ecological and economical sustainability in the production areas.

Why Gender Advocates Should Care About Climate Finance & the Green Climate Fund (GCF)
Tuesday, 26. March 2019

Taita Taveta County has in the past few years experienced an ascendancy of Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV) cases which include rape, defilement, incest, sexual abuse, and sodomy.   Gender Based Violence (GBV) is caused by unequal power relations between men and women, socio-cultural norms that normalize GBV, discriminatory practices and changing gender roles.

From this background, Heinrich Boll Foundation in partnership with Sauti Ya wanawake Pwani and the office of the women representative intend to host a gender forum on Mitigating Gender based violence. The forum will serve as a post activity of the international women’s day, themed “GENDER BALANCE” and will aim at bringing community members for a conversation with the relevant stakeholders to identify the priorities and key areas of intervention that will aid in mitigating gender-based violence through accountability actions by the leadership of Taita Taveta County.
