Organization Women's Earth Alliance
Realm Afrotropics

The Project Marketplace is organized by the major terrestrial realms divided into 14 biogeographical regions – N. America, Subarctic America, C. America, S. America, Afrotropics, Indomalaya, Australasia, Oceania, Antarctica, and the Palearctic realm, which coincides with Eurasia and is divided into Subarctic, Western, Central, Eastern, and Southern regions.

Category Regenerative Agriculture

There are five main project categories: Energy Transition focuses on renewable energy access and energy efficiency. Nature Conservation includes wildlife habitat protection and ecosystem restoration, as well as Indigenous land rights. Regenerative Agriculture supports farmers, ranchers and community agriculture. Climate Change covers global science efforts, climate adaptation, and social justice work.

Timeframe 1 Year

The Kenya Women's Earth Alliance Accelerator convenes cohorts of Kenyan women leaders to catalyze their efforts to protect their communities and the environment from climate threats like drought, coastal biodiversity collapse, and food insecurity.  

Through this project, grassroots women leaders throughout Kenya launch and scale climate resilience initiatives that have far-reaching impact. The Accelerator equips women with the skills, tools, networks, and resources they need to create sustainable and scalable environmental initiatives. Leaders in this program are scaling projects related to reforestation, regenerative agriculture, and food security. For example, a number of the women’s initiatives include training communities to grow and distribute plant tree saplings for agroforestry, erosion control, and climate adaptation; growing climate-resilient seed and establishing community seed banks as a viable alternative to agro-chemical seed systems; and establishing women-led climate groups to identify and address climate disasters like flood and drought.
