UN-Habitat Country Programme Document – Kenya
The UN-Habitat Country Programme Documents are tangible components of the plan and a genuine endeavour to strategically develop country programmes in a consultative and inclusive process involving UN-Habitat’s country team and headquarter branches, national governments, sister agencies from the UN Country Team, and development partners.
The formulation of the Kenya Country Programme Document (2013–2015) comes at a time when Kenya is in transition to a devolved system of governance under a new constitution and also after the Government of Kenya has formulated Vision 2030 (and its five-year midterm plans), a strategic plan that aims to transform Kenya into a newly industrialized, middle-income country.
It also comes at a time when the UN Country Team in Kenya has started the formulation of the next UN Development Assistance Framework (2014–2019). It is intended to overcome fragmentation in the delivery and implementation of UN-Habitat’s programme in Kenya , enhance UN-Habitat’s effectiveness, encourage close collaboration with the Government of Kenya, relevant civil society and private sector organizations, the UN Country Team, and the donor community in Kenya.
