Kenya has a long-standing history in her commitment to sustainable development because its future depends on the achievement of a holistic, integrated and participatory implementation of social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. Whereas the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development represents a global response to global challenges, Kenya considers it nationally relevant and capable of having a transformative impact on the quality of life of all Kenyans similar to the aspirations of the Kenya Vision 2030.
As part of internal review for the second VNR reporting, policy gaps analysis for the implementation of SDGs was undertaken in 2018 to assess the country’s preparedness to implement the 2030 Agenda. The study found out that the Constitution of Kenya, the MTP III and priorities of the Government under the Big Four Agenda adequately cover the 2030 Agenda targets. The study recommended the enhancement of National Policy Framework with need to review the existing frameworks and the need to develop new policies to further the 2030 Agenda. The country also conducted an awareness assessment on the SDGs across the country, which has been informing the awareness campaigns in the country.
