Country Strategy for Development Cooperation with Kenya 2013–2016
Cooperation with Finland's seven longterm development partner countries is based primarily on individual, goal-oriented country programmes, the starting point for which is the development plan each country has made for itself. In addition, the main operational guidelines of Finland’s development policy apply.
In accordance with EU recommendations, each country programme tries to contain at least three areas of development cooperation. The aim is that the partner country will lead the coordination of development cooperation in the implementation.
The Country Strategy defines indicators to use to monitor the progress of development cooperation in the partner country, and to evaluate the effectiveness of Finland’s activities.
Objectives of Finnish development cooperation with Kenya
- A democratic and accountable society that promotes human rights
- Poverty reduction through inclusive green economic growth in the agricultural sector
- Improved management and use of forest and water resources with increased participation of communities, civil society and private sector
