Governance and Socio-Economic Inclusion
Governance and Socio-Economic Inclusion remains a critical aspect of Kenya’s development trajectory. Kenya has made significant progress in democratization and improving governance since the adoption of a new Constitution in 2010. However, challenges still exist in ensuring inclusive society and equal access to public resources and opportunities for all citizens.
CFA works to promote good governance by providing a voice to the voiceless and holding governments at both the national and sub-national levels accountable for their decisions, actions and/or lack thereof. We do this through advocacy and awareness-raising campaigns, as well as by monitoring government policies and programs. We also promote transparency and accountability by advocating for access to information and encouraging citizens to participate in decision-making processes and public policy discourse.
It is part of our philosophy, that tackling Gender Inequality requires opening spaces and strengthening citizens’ voices and ability to speak to the government to hold them to account for the fulfilment of their basic rights. CFA plays a key role in promoting gender equality by advocating for the rights and participation of marginalized groups, including women, youth, PWDs and other minority groups in society.
To address the harsh effects of Climate Change, CFA is committed to ensuring that citizens are at the centre of policy-making, implementation and public oversight of climate justice policies and actions. We work with communities especially women and youth, PLWDs, civil society organizations and the government both at national and sub-national levels, to generate evidence for informing and influencing climate action. Our programmes are geared towards ensuring transparency and accountability in climate action. To achieve this we ensure representation, inclusion, and protection of the rights of those most vulnerable to the effects of climate change.
It is our conviction that public actions must promote equity, assure access to basic resources, and ensure that young people women and girls can live, learn, play and work in healthy and clean environments.
