SUNY/CID conducted a two-week study visit to the United States and Canada for the Parliament of Kenya. The visit was funded by the Kenyan National Assembly’s Joint Committee on Parliamentary Broadcasting and Library with the objective of learning how proceedings and sessions are recorded and presented to the public in other legislatures.
Following the enactment of the 2010 Constitution and the introduction of a devolved system of governance, Kenya’s counties have become centers for growth. One resulting opportunity is the development of the livestock sector, especially in those counties that fall in the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL) counties.
The Tharaka Nithi County Government in Kenya signed performance contracts with its staff in a launch ceremony themed ‘what is measured, gets done’. The ceremony was a culmination of introducing results based management, by SUNY/CID through the Agile and Harmonized Assistance for Devolved Institutions program (AHADI) project supported by USAID.
