Kenya has the largest and most diverse economy in eastern Africa, characterized by a strong private sector, progressive market policies and an advanced human capital base. It has a population that is strongly enterprising, highly techno-savvy, globally connected and young – with more than 70 per cent being below the age of 30. The legacy of Kenya’s economic leadership depends on how the country taps into its blooming youthful population.
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.
