Kenya Design Report 2018-2020 – For Public Comment
In 2020, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the design report for Kenya’s third action plan. The report covers the action plan development process and the design of commitments.
In Kenya, the IRM researcher Linda Oduor-Noah’s findings are summarized below:
To develop Kenya’s third action plan, the country increased participation of CSOs, however, without deepening their involvement to share the decision-making power and increasing the ambition of the plan. It contains three notable reforms to carry forward on addressing beneficial ownership, open contracting and public participation. Moving forward, Kenya could consider expanding the scope of commitments to include other relevant national priorities like improving civic space.
