Democratic Governance, Peace and Security

Speeches Shim

USAID supports an inclusive, peaceful, and well-governed society that promotes dignity and civic engagement. Kenya has reached many democratic milestones, including:

  • The adoption of an inclusive and progressive Constitution in 2010.  
  • A decentralized governance structure of 47 county governments with increased county capacity in public expenditure management and enhanced public participation.
  • The formulation of county-level action plans to counter violent extremism with participation of community members, religious leaders, and the government.

To build on these achievements, USAID partners with the Kenyan people, civil society, the private sector, ministries, Parliament, and other Government of Kenya institutions to strengthen governance structures and institutions, prevent conflict and violence, and promote peace.
