Supporting accountable democratic governance and active citizenry in Kenya” is a twenty-seven-month program funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This project follows two phases of International IDEA activities in Kenya, in 2012 to 2014 and 2015 to 2017. The activities in both phases focused on strengthening the capacities of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP) to discharge their mandates in the elections of 2013 and 2017.

 The overarching goal of the project is to: Contribute to the strengthening of democratic institutions and processes that will support accountable democratic governance and active citizenry in Kenya. This project goal will be achieved through three complimentary components:

  1. Strengthening institutional capacity of the Office of the Registrar for Political Parties (ORPP) to discharge its statutory mandate and support the organizational development of political parties in Kenya
  2. Enhancing mechanisms for accountability and active citizenry in local governance by supporting local government leaders and other key stakeholders gain deeper understanding of state of local governance in Kenya through multi-stakeholder engagements
  3. Strengthening knowledge base on Kenya political reforms through conducting research and publishing the findings
