PROJECTSupporting Devolved Institutions in Kenya

Under USAID's Agile and Harmonised Assistance for Devolved Institutions (AHADI) project, Urban has partnered with the State University of New York (SUNY) to assist Kenyan authorities and the public in understanding and carrying out their new roles in this complex environment. 

We are working with local partners including CSOs, universities, government officials and citizens to articulate their priorities, form critical policy advocacy linkages, and establish oversight mechanisms among CSOs, the Parliament and county assembles. These linkages and mechanisms will both "check the state upwards" and enhance working democracy at the county level.
