Devolution in Kenya: The Establishment of County Budget and Economic Forums

It is essential as youth representing various counties to be empowered with knowledge on establishment of County Budget and Economic Forums in Counties.Find below a research carried out by International Budget that will highlight what is happening at some counties.

Executive Summary

Published by International Budget
November 2015 | by Christine Kamau

Kenya’s 2010 constitution, and subsequent Public Finance Management Act, introduced a new structure of government that puts citizen participation at the core. County Budget and Economic Forums (CBEFs) have emerged as a key institution intended to facilitate public engagement in budgets and economic development at the county level.

Despite being a legal requirement, not all counties have established a CBEF. Those that have are still grappling with the structure, functions, and how to support the forum, as well as their relationship with the county governments and County Assemblies. This paper presents the findings of research conducted in four counties that are among those that have established a CBEF: Kericho, Kisumu, Kwale and Taita Taveta.

It aims to gather emerging lessons, document challenges that the CBEFs and the county governments in the four areas have encountered, and capture how these challenges have been managed. It also provides a set of recommendations for improving their operations that is relevant for all Kenyan counties.

Student Consortium for Human Rights Advocacy (SCOHRA) is a youth organization passionate about positively transforming the society. SCOHRA was founded in 2009 by a group of university students interested in non-violent forms of social advocacy.

Vision: To seek a world free from prejudice steered by young people who uphold social justice, equality and dignity for all.

Mission: To inspire human rights consciousness among the youth through willing and active participation in human rights advocacy; and to grow a vibrant human rights culture

Message to Youths

Youths need to know what they want,organise themselves at the ward level&draw energy from each other.If a ward has 75 youth groups,it is impossible for the area Member of County Assembly to meet all of them within a month.Therefore youths at the county level should form one group that has representatives from the various youth groups , delegate duties  with regard to planning,sourcing for funds and raising their visibility in the county.By doing that,the county government will see you as one entity that is powerful and address your concerns- Speech from Kevin Osido who was a panelist at the just concluded Public Participation Forum organised by Fortitude Kenya

CHILD SAFETY FAIR TO BE HELD IN NAIROBI COUNTY

Simba-Safe Kenya runs a Personal Safety Education Programme (PSE) for children and the founder is Maryana Munyendo.The Simba-Safe Program seeks to empower kids with information regarding how to tackle real life situations that may face them such as what to do when they get lost, safety skills necessary to protect themselves from physical or sexual abuse and how to tell a trusted adult about any problems they may have.

Approach:
The Simba-Safe Program approaches the subject of prevention in a very gentle and non-frightening way using hands-on discovery learning that is FUN, EDUCATIONAL & ENTERTAINING for children through free spontaneous play. Through various ways they stimulate children so that they can transition from being taught or entertained (passive) to learning through play (active).
Simba-Safe’s training programs are also tailored to the age appropriate cognitive and learning abilities of children. It is important that children enjoy and look forward to the lessons. If children know that there is something they can do to keep safe, they will feel safer and more confident.

Panel_Forum_Poster[1]-1

Aim of the Forum
-The forum seeks to evaluate the level of youth involvement in public participation forums at the county level and encourage them to participate fully in the governance process. As a result the youth will be able to present their agenda and exercise their duly accorded right and to ultimately advocate for a leadership that is fully aware of civil liberties, political processes, good governance and best practices for generation of favorable political patronage after 2017 general elections.
-The forum will focus on individual patriotism, personal integrity, community building, understanding the budget cycle and strategic planning to enhance their realization of Article 1(2) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010

Participants Expected:
Youth from different counties and representatives of different youth led organizations.

Venue of the Forum: Technical University of Kenya Theatre

Topics to be discussed:
• Personal Integrity/Patriotism
What does it mean to be a patriot? How can we best represent ourselves in a democratic manner? What does it mean to be a Kenyan, a patriot as per the Constitution? Are we part of an active citizenry or could we be less bothered?
• Public Finance Management
Do we understand the county budget cycles? Where and what are our opportunities as youth in this process? Why should we participate? How can we keep the county government in check, monitor expenditure and ensure equity in resource division?
• Strategic Planning
How can we as young people organize ourselves to effectively advocate for the adoption of a plan by the county government?
• Accessing Government Opportunities
What opportunities are there for advancement by the youth? Can public participation be used as a tool to encourage access to the development funds and tendering processes set aside for the youth?

The World Bank Group will launch a Massive Online Open Course on Financing for Development on 16 November

http://www.un.org/youthenvoy/2015/11/the-world-bank-group-will-launch-a-massive-online-open-course-on-financing-for-development-on-16-november/

What exactly is financing for development? How can the new global development agenda be financed? Learn more by signing up for this free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Financing for Development which launches on November 16. A certificate of accomplishment — issued by the World Bank Group in partnership with Coursera — will be received by those who successfully complete the course requirements.

2015 is a critical year for development. Leaders from around the world adopted a global 2030 development agenda at a UN Summit in September 2015. The new global goals, called the Sustainable Development Goals, are ambitious and demand equal ambition in using the “billions” in Official Development Assistance to channel and crowd-in “trillions” in investments of all kinds: public and private, national and international.

This online course will familiarize participants with public and private solutions — including innovative instruments — to finance the new global development agenda. Participants will hear from prominent government, international organization and private sector leaders. Each has considerable first-hand experience in preparing and implementing development projects and forging public-private collaborations.

The course is launched under the sponsorship of the Open Learning Campus, dedicated to development learning to build the leadership and technical capabilities of partners, practitioners, policy makers, World Bank Group staff and the public.

POLITICAL LEADERSHIP AND GOVERNANCE PROGRAMME OFFERED BY FRIEDRICH EBERT STIFTUNG: TOWARDS TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP IN KENYA

The German Government through the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) offers capacity building to young leaders who participate in the Political Leadership and Governance Programme.The Political Leadership and Governance Programme (PLGP) emanates from the FES’ renowned Political Leadership Development Programme (PLDP) which has provided visionary leaders in Kenya’s national and county assemblies and in academia, policy and other organizations.

group photo with guest

The PLDP was designed as a special intervention to create a new political leadership culture in Kenya and this it has done with significant success. Some of the notable persons who have gone through this programme are Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, Senator Martha Wangari ,Nairobi Women Representative Rachael Shebesh ,Honorable Pamela Owen Kisumu County Assembly Minority Leader, Bernadette Muyomi Busia County Cabinet Minister in charge of ICT and Public Service, Titus Kaloki who was recently elected by the President as a board Member of the Tana Athi Water Services Board, Teddy Mwambire Deputy Speaker Kilifi County ,Ann Njogu ,Kepta Ombati among others.

motto
Like its predecessor, the Political Leadership and Governance Programme (PLGP) seeks to nurture and promote value-driven leadership for good governance in a democratic society. The focus is not only on political parties but also civil society organizations and special interest groups. The program aims to assist in the strengthening and professionalization of these organizations through building the capacity of talented young women and men from diverse backgrounds to provide leadership with a difference.

Lifting hands together

The training also offers participants the chance to create and strengthen youth leadership and mentorship network through linkages at both national and county levels. This goes a long way to facilitate a paradigm shift in Kenyan leadership culture to one that is issues and development based and driven by values.This programme endeavors to build the capacity of young people to take up leadership opportunities for representation within elective, appointive and decision making structures.

The Participants of the Political Leadership and Governance Programme (PLGP 2015) graduated on the 7th of November 2015 after undergoing a six month rigorous training. The programme ended with the participants walking on fire which literally means that if you focus on your goal you can achieve despite the challenges you will go through.
To participate in the programme it is essential for you to initiate projects in your respective counties and have the desire to engage in the political arena. More than 700 applicants applied but only 19 were selected. The founder of this blog “Youth County Projects Kenya” was also a beneficiary of this year’s Political Leadership and Governance Programme.
