What are risks to the implementation of the KJAS? What can be done to mitigate these risks?

Risks to successful implementation of the KJAS exist. However, the KJAS partners have developed specific measures to mitigate these risks.

Major risks include:
• Vested interests that prevent reform.
• Reforms that are too ambitious with respect to capacity for implementation.
• Poor governance that  prevents effective use of resources and discourages private sector investment.
• Political uncertainity that discourages investment.
• Unpredictability of donor funding that disturbs macro and fiscal management.
• Unwillingness of development partners to adhere to the KJAS and its principles that reduces the general effectiveness of aid.
• External factors- such as major terms of trade shifts against Kenyan exports, poor weather, avian flu, and political instability of countries in the region- that pose unknown risks.

The KJAS partners will mitigate these risks through a range of measures. They will help to strengthen anti-corruption institutions and to build capacity for improved public sector management at levels og government.  They will also work with reformers in the parliament, the private sector, civil society, academics, and the media to enable them to play their important roles in bringing about positive change. KJAS partners will also work to reduce the risk of development programs posed by the sometimes uncertain level and nature of their assistance by working through a harmonised framework and making changes only through consultation with the Government.
