In the month of March, 2018, Kenya Business Guide (KBG) in partnership with the Institute of Security Studies (South Africa) held a week-long workshop titled “Kenya Sustainable Development Forecast” in Nairobi, Kenya. This year KBG, ISS and GIZ will launch a report titled “Kenya Development Forecast: Key Trends to 2030 and Beyond”. The joint project will assess the projected scenarios and progress towards the adoption of the National Development targets, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Policy Priorities. Through the workshop, KBG, ISS and GIZ would be able to validate the information, collect additional information and establish buy in.
The workshop consisted of five sessions with in-depth and extensive discussions held on current and future trends of Kenya’s economy in the following key sectors: Demographics, Agriculture, Environment, Economy, Energy, Infrastructure, Governance, Health and Education. Round table discussions were held during each session and participants comprised of experts and key stakeholders from the various sectors. Discussions touched upon the content of the report with a focus on how the report will contribute to the achievement of sustainable growth and development, importance of local contextual issues/ considerations, and the need for continued inclusion of key stakeholders, actors and champions.
Information and feedback collected from the workshop will be integrated in the second draft of the report with a hope of increasing its utility among a diverse group of stakeholders and actors.
