Kenya Devolution Support Programme

UK Department for International Development

The Kenyan Constitution, adopted by referendum in 2010, introduced far reaching devolution to 47 newly-established counties. Hopes are high that devolution will improve accountability and service delivery and contribute to poverty reduction. The purpose of this programme is to build and improve public services for Kenyan citizens, particularly focusing at the county level where poverty exists and where public service delivery is poor. The programme will improve the ability of county governments to better plan, deliver and monitor the delivery of public services. This includes working with county governments to strengthen public financial management systems (e.g. improving accounting, audit and procurement systems) to ensure that public money is effectively spent and can be accounted for. It also includes a focus on critical services for example health. The programme will help county governments to improve planning and allocation of budgets for different sectors.

Phytosanitary capacity development in developing countries

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

To provide capacity development training to ODA eligible countries which regularly export regulated plant health goods to the UK. Training would either be on-the ground in the recipient country, in the form of placements in the UK, e.g. at Fera Science Ltd. or working alongside APHA inspectors at points of entry or a combination of the two. A range of training materials will also be developed and provided. Provision of such training should help reduced the number of non-compliant consignments exported to the UK, a significant proportion of which are destroyed when intercepted by the UK plant health service. Destruction of consignments obviously negates all financial benefits to the exporter.
