UNDP Kenya in collaboration with the Government of Kenya has rolled out its programmatic blueprint for the next 5 years, with a promise to work closer with the people of Kenya to effectively respond to localized developmental challenges through integrated area-based programming that will ensure reach to the marginalised communities, especially those in the Arid and Semi-Arid areas and frontier counties in the spirit of the SDGs’ Leaving No One Behind.
STRENGTHENING ENVIRONMENTAL GOVERNANCE WITHIN THE EXTRACTIVES SECTOR KEY TO REAPING OPTIMAL BENEFITS
Kenya’s prospects for the extractive industry are promising, though since independence, the modest portfolio of minerals has made only a marginal contribution to the GDP. While the prospects of developing the extractives sector into a major earner for Kenya is promising, the envisaged impacts on the environmental as well as the observed weaknesses in workable laws, regulations and policies requires urgent attention.
UNDP remains one of the most transparent development organizations in the world, according to a new index rating similar organizations across the world.
