Kara participated as a member of the planning committee and exhibitor at the 6th Annual Devolution Conference held on 4th to 8th March 2019 in Kirinyaga County where we showcased our work that is in line with devolution and Big Four Agenda.

The fight against graft, sharing of revenue between national and county governments, and establishment of implementation scorecard for the Big Four Agenda are some of the issues that dominated discussions at the conference.

The objective of the conference was to provide a platform for the County Governments to share experiences, challenges and lessons learnt over the year and set clear targets for the coming years. In addition, it also provided opportunity to celebrate the success of devolution and a platform for participants to identify opportunities for partnership. The theme of the conference was “Deliver. Transform. Measure. Remaining Accountable” and it was jointly convened by the Council of Governors (COG), Ministry of Devolution and ASAL, Senate and the County Assemblies Forum (CAF). Other participants were drawn from the national government, county governments, private sector, development partners, civil society, media, and policy makers among others. Speaker after speaker emphasized the need for the Government to do more in the fight against corruption as this was identified as the one of biggest threat to sustainable development in Kenya.
