Kenya frequently experiences humanitarian emergencies, including droughts, floods, landslides, ethnic conflicts, diseases, epidemics, and fires, among others, which necessitate multisectoral responses. Disasters and emergencies affect women, men, boys, and girls differently due to their roles, responsibilities, and status in society. Women and girls are more adversely affected as a result of their perceived lesser status.
The objective of the “One UN” is to improve the impact, coherence, efficiency, effectiveness and positioning of the UN system in Kenya to enable it better assist the country to meet the MDGs and Vision 2030. This will be achieved through One Programme, One Budgetary Framework, One Office, One Leader and Communicating as One.
