Document Details:

Kenya’s new constitution (passed in 2010), lay the groundwork for devolution. As with any country in transition, there is a lack of clarity between the roles and jurisdiction of the implementing authorities at the national and county levels in several areas. This creates challenges while implementing PPP projects, since the very right of the authority to develop the project or enter into an agreement with the private sector may be questioned.

The Government of Kenya has recently drafted its County PPP Regulations, which aim for greater clarity in the roles and jurisdiction of implementing and contracting authorities at the national and county level. The regulations were developed in the context of the changes brought about by the devolution process. This webinar will discuss the trends, practices, challenges, and implications of the County PPP Regulations with a focus on clarifying roles at the national and subnational levels.
