Speaker: Pete Vowles, Head of DFID Kenya
Pete Vowles has been Head of DFID Kenya since April 2016 and has kindly agreed to brief us on the DFID country programme.
Kenya has the largest, most diverse economy in East Africa. But about 25% of Kenyans do not have enough income to meet their basic food needs. Progress on the Millennium Development Goals is patchy.
DFID Kenya concentrates on:
improving maternal and reproductive health
accelerating the fight against malaria
increasing school access and the quality of education
reducing vulnerability and malnutrition among Kenya’s most disadvantaged
supporting refugees, improving governance and accountability
catalysing private sector growth to create more jobs for young people
helping Kenya to develop green energy and adapt to a changing climate
The meeting will last from 1230-1400 over a working sandwich lunch.
