Kenya: 25 UN Agencies Launch Co-Ordination Effort in Kenya

Twenty-five United Nations agencies in Kenya have agreed on a co-ordination framework to implement in various projects between 2014 and 2018 worth 225 billion shillings ($2.6 billion), Kenya's Capital FM reported Monday (March 24th).

Under the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), the agencies will help improve efficiency and reduce costs in advocacy, capacity development, policy advice and other programming related to national priorities.

The government has agreed to partner with the UN agencies in this effort, which is designed to support Kenya's Vision 2030 development agenda.

Similar UNDAF agreements have already been implemented with success in Mozambique, Rwanda and Tanzania.
