Kenya Action Plan Review 2020-2022 – For Public Comment
In 2021, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Action Plan Review for Kenya’s fourth action plan. The report provides a technical review of the action plan’s characteristics and the strengths and challenges the IRM identifies to inform a stronger implementation process.
In Kenya, the IRM’s findings are summarized below:
Kenya’s fourth action plan continues ambitious reforms not previously completed, including the adoption of the open contracting data standards, the implementation of the Access to Information Act and the promotion of meaningful participation in the legislative processes. It also introduces new promising policy areas such as improving access to justice. Commitments primarily focus on increasing transparency and civic participation and could include stronger actions to enhance accountability through feedback and redress mechanisms. Moving forward, the Kenyan OGP Steering Committee should strengthen its oversight role, coordinating with implementing agencies to ensure that milestones have the adequate resources and are met in time and to their full extent.
