Strategies for sustainable development in Kenya

Shaping the future

Kenya’s future offers both opportunities and significant challenges. It is a continental leader in information technology and has well-developed health and education systems relative to other lower-middle-income African countries, despite average incomes being at the low end of that threshold. However, access to other basic services is poor and various corruption scandals have cast a shadow over development prospects. To shape a better future Kenya must improve the quality of governance and accelerate service delivery without sacrificing gains in other areas.

Kenya Business Guide

The Kenya Business Guide (KBG) is a think-tank that seeks to support the improvement and strengthening of the business environment in Kenya by providing access to information on key features of both the private and public sector prerequisites in the effective functioning of business. The KBG works in the intersection of the private and public sectors developing curated and value-added information to assist leaders in making more effective decisions.
