REPORT ON THE SIXTH DEVELOPMENT PARTNERSHIP FORUM MEETING HELD AT THE HILTON HOTEL NAIROBI ON 19TH NOVEMBER 2013

 The Sixth Development Partnership Forum was the first such meeting under the new government structure of national and county governments. The forum was chaired by H.E William Ruto the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya. Among the participants in the forum were  Cabinet Secretaries (CSs), Principal Secretaries, County Governors/county representatives, High Commissioners and ambassadors, Heads of Development Cooperation in Kenya, technical officers from government and development agencies , representatives of the private sector and the civil society and the media. The mix of participants made the DPF widely inclusive and consultative. The Government of Kenya (GoK) used the opportunity to highlight Kenya’s development challenges, reaffirm the GoK’s medium-term priorities and reassure DPs of its commitment to have in place ‘a leaner and more efficient government’. It was also an opportunity for DPs to reaffirm their support to  national priorities as stipulated in the Medium Term Plan and the Vision 2030 and address current issues such as  the fight against corruption and the issue of rising insecurity while  highlighting aspects of cooperation that are important to them.

 The expected outcomes of the forum were:

 • Strengthened and continued alignment to Kenya’s development objectives

• Effective Development Partners’ engagement at the county level 

 The day’s discussions and presentations centered on the following objectives as agreed between the GoK and Development Partners:

 (i)     To review the state of the economy and the budget

(ii)   To review of the status of the implementation of the Constitution and to isolate priority areas for action

(iii) To discuss the on-going devolution process and Development Partners’ engagement in county governments

(iv)  To evaluate  the status of the Second Medium Term Plan (MTP II) with regard to Development Partners’ Engagement

 Importantly, too the proceedings of the Pre-DPF held a week earlier (12th November 2013) fed into the discussions during the 6th DPF forum.
