Kenya joined P4G as a country partner and launched its National Platform in 2018.
The concept of P4G in Kenya is anchored in the country’s long-term development framework, Vision 2030, and reinforces the country’s commitment to a sustainable, inclusive future by nurturing and scaling up multistakeholder partnerships to deliver Kenya’s Vision 2030 and The Big 4 Agenda (2018 – 2022).
Kenya’s Vision 2030 aims to transform the country into a newly industrializing, upper middle-income country by providing a high quality of life to its citizens in a clean and secure environment. This is accelerated by The Big 4 Agenda outlined by President Uhuru Kenyatta which seeks to ensure food security, provide affordable housing, increase manufacturing, and provide affordable healthcare within 2018 - 2022. Kenya has also integrated the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within its development plans within the medium terms plans (MTPs) which are the 5-year development plans for the country derived from Vision 2030.
The P4G National Platform in Kenya aims to catalyze solutions and accelerate innovative partnerships, which can then act as engines for change and transformations for delivery of Kenya’s Vision 2030 as well as for solving systemic challenges to green growth and sustainable development. The National Platform, led by its co-chairs The National Treasury of Kenya and the Kenya Private Sector Alliance as well as the Ministry of Environment and Forestry and the Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat, recognizes the need for multistakeholder partnerships that advance global goals and sustainable development and will thus bring together key stakeholders including private sector, government and civil society organizations and academia to form partnerships and advance green solutions for driving economic growth.
Kenya’s National Platform will also nurture, consolidate, scale up, and recognize outstanding multistakeholder partnerships that unlock Kenya’s growth potential. Kenya hosts P4G partnerships focused on:
Kenya looks forward to serving as a regional hub and facilitating innovative projects for the green economy.
Kenya has a set of clear national priorities to strengthen food security, circular economy, and sustainable infrastructure. P4G’s co-creation and acceleration approach skillfully aligns with the national priorities for sustainable growth. It delivers commercially viable solutions to position Kenya as a key player in the global supply chain by integrating green and circular models in the development of sustainable industrial parks across different sectors like textile and agriculture processing.
