The Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA Kenya) in partnership with the National Council of NGOs and HBF organised a civil society workshop in 2002 on the New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD) in order to disseminate and exchange information on the programme; identify existing gaps, focusing primarily on gender gaps; and discussing and developing strategies with regards to more in-volvement in developing and implementing the plan. In recognition that NEPAD is centred on develop-ment inspired by African countries, it was noted that ensuring gender mainstreaming within the document would be a vital step towards guaranteeing economic empowerment of women, who have historically been marginalised.
