The Indigenous Livelihoods Enhancement Partners (ILEPA) is an organization  established in 2008 based in Kenya, which aims to enhance environmental conservation and livelihoods diversification for pastoralist indigenous communities with focus on Osuopuko division fo Narok South District. The immediate objective is to promote alternative sources of livelihoods through a ecosystems-based approach. It aims to enhance livelihoods with diversification options and sources of income. It will further improve access, management and sustainable use of natural resources to ensure security of livelihoods, experimentation and validation of REDD+ safeguards locally and nationally. It also aims to improve and enhance indigenous peoples’ participation in governance in the context of natural resource management promoting accountability and transparency. ILEPA had been participating in national REDD+ processes such as the Kenya Working Group for Climate Change in framing the social and environmental safeguards in relation to IPs to be integrated in the REDD+ national strategy. Tebtebba had been working with them in research and co-facilitating workshops in coming up with the community-participatory monitoring tools that are indigenous-and gender sensitive.
