OUR WORK - DEMOCRATIC GOVERNANCE
MORE ABOUT DEMOCRATIC GOVERNANCE
Democratic Governance is central to the work of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Kenya given the national focus on governance reforms. UNDP’s work in the governance sector is aimed at building institutions and processes that are more responsive to the needs of citizens especially the poor and marginalized, and that ensure fidelity to the rule of law. UNDP supports the country’s efforts towards achieving the Vision 2030 Political Pillar, which envisions a democratic system that is issue-based, people-centered, results-oriented and accountable to the public. This political pillar gears to transform the country’s political governance across five strategic areas; The Rule of Law, Electoral and Political Processes, Democracy and Public Service Delivery, Transparency and Accountability, Security Peace Building and Conflict Management. UNDP is working with stakeholders towards the realisation of the governance reform aspirations under each of these strategic areas. These strategic areas are anchored in the Constitution, promulgated in August 2010 marking a major milestone in the democratic journey of Kenya and set a new threshold in terms of people-centered development.
