Devolution and Accountability The Program seeks to enhance the capacity of national and County Governments in response to Governance, Human rights, Gender equality and HIV/AIDS. This will improve efficiency, effectiveness, transparency, accountability and equality
Productive Sector and Trade: This entails working with Women, Youth and People With Disability to reduce poverty and accelerate progress towards Sustainable development Goals by supporting pro poor economic growth and inclusive market development in Kenya
Environment Sustainability, Renewable Energy and Sustainable Land management : This Program largely addresses the management and sustainability of the natural resources and support the country to meet its obligations to international environment agreement.
Community Security Cohesion and Resilience This Program aims to build the capacities of institutions, communities and vulnerable people, particularly women, to increase their resilience and reduce the risks and impacts of disasters, recurrent conflicts, violence and shocks, including from climate change. It will also focus on supporting the development of conflict management policies, strategies and programs; building the capacities of institutions and communities, especially women and youth.
