Capacity Development for Child Sensitive Planning and Budgeting in Kenya

KIPPRA is participating in the Capacity Development for Child Sensitive Planning and Budgeting initiative in Kenya with support from UNICEF. Core sectors of focus include public financial management, health, education, social protection, and water and sanitation services.

The process is being spearheaded by the National Treasury. Other partnering institutions include Oxford Policy Management (OPM) and Kenya School of Government (KSG).

The overall objective of this initiative is to develop the national and county governments’ capacity and capabilities in the area of child sensitive planning, budgeting and related policy making processes.

Upcoming activities in relation to the initiative include national level and county level trainings; and production of selected county budget briefs, starting with Kisumu, West Pokot and Nairobi. The project will inform the 2018/19 budget making process through participation in relevant sector budget working groups.
