Transparency International Kenya Launches Five Year Plan
Transparency International Kenya has launched its strategic plan for the next five years 2017 – 2022. The strategy, Concept of Action 2017 – 2022, is anchored on four key pillars. These are Public Accountability; Policy, Legal and Institutional Frameworks; Social Justice and Economic Accountability; and Institutional Development.
Through these pillars TI-Kenya seeks to empower the public to be responsive and effective in holding duty bearers to account, while facilitating the existence of supportive policy, legal and institutional frameworks for anti-corruption interventions. TI-Kenya will also push for effective implementation of established anti-corruption regulatory frameworks, prevention of the reversal of related hard-won gains, in addition to addressing capacity challenges within various accountability institutions. Additionally, we will also address growing cases of inequity in the distribution of public resources and opportunities.
TI-Kenya recognises that the sustained rise in the level of corruption calls for a change of strategy, if we are to succeed in turning the tide against the vice. This Strategic Plan (2017 – 2022) outlines the strategies and actions that TI-Kenya will undertake to address the noted challenges. We seek specially to contribute to the realisation of national priorities and global commitments.
TI-Kenya has a well-defined organizational identity as outlined below.
