Over the past half-century, Kenya has established itself as an important regional player on the continent, and has achieved successes on multiple fronts. The turn of the century marked an economic revival that has been accompanied by a rise in citizens’ expectations. Following the rebasing of gross domestic product (GDP) in September 2014, the country joined the celebrated ranks of the lower-middle income countries.
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.
