COUNTY PARTNERS WITH AHADI TO EMPOWER THE CIVIL SOCIETY NETWORK FOR SUCCESSFUL CITIZEN PARTICIPATION IN GOVERNANCE
Agile and Harmonized Assistance for Devolved Institutions(AHADI) has been supporting counties in the integration of citizens’ participation into training, policy development and research activities. AHADI is building capacity of all actors of devolution process -national, county, Sub- County, and civil society with the aim of promoting governance systems that are transparent, accountable, effective in service delivery, and responsive to empowered citizens.
AHADI is partnering with the County Government of Nandi in empowering and building the capacity of the Nandi County civil society Network in enhancing effective public participation and citizen oriented governance.
Speaking during a meeting with consultants from AHADI, the CO for Administration and public Service, Philip Towett pointed out that the department is developing a good operational plan in collaboration with AHADI on civil society’s involvement in effective governance.
AHADI Regional Program Officer, Dan Anduvate promised to fully support the Civil Society’s partnership with Government in development. To enhance this, it will be carrying out training, mentoring, and experiential learning to advance the work of government and citizens involvement through effective public participation.
The civil society being a key link between the government and the citizens, its contribution forms an integral part of policy development and implementation. It is therefore called upon to support and be part of this initiative.
