The United States Agency for International Development is announcing the Kenya Inclusive Governance, Accountability, Performance and Participation (Kenya-IGAPP) Annual Program Statement (APS) (known thereafter as Kenya-IGAPP APS).

USAID/KEA seeks to build partnerships with Kenyans, Kenyan leaders, institutions and organizations to promote transformational change in key governance systems and processes. This partnership will be achieved through a new five-year program, the Kenya-IGAPP activity, with the following key results:

  • Fraud, waste and abuse in key service delivery sectors decreased;
  • Accountability and transparency in electoral and democratic processes improved, while citizen resilience against political manipulation enhanced;
  • Devolved services more accountable and better financed to deepen devolution;
  • Civic and media space protected and citizen networks strengthened;
  • Women’s rights and the rights and aspirations of adolescent girls protected and advanced; and
  • Accelerated learning and adaptive management strengthened.

Expected Results and Outcomes: (Result IV out of VI)

Civic and media space protected and citizen networks strengthened:

  • Regulatory environment strengthened for improved media independence and protected civic space,
  • Post-COVID-19 civil society and media advocacy strategy enhanced to advance and respond to the secondary effects of COVID-19,
  • Advocacy on the rights of adolescent girls enhanced, and
  • Capacity and internal governance systems of CSO networks and coalitions strengthened. Civil society capacity to diversify funding, and build new partnerships with the private sector, youth and women networks enhanced.
