The Link between Corruption and Poverty: Lessons from Kenya Case Studies

This book is designed to create greater awareness of the effects and consequences of corruption and to help build public consensus on the need to fight corruption. It draws from both theoretical and practical insights to suggest anti-corruption strategies that emphasize preventive rather than punitive measures. The book offers suggestions on an action plan to deal with corruption and concludes that preventing corruption helps to reduce poverty, improve service delivery and restore public confidence.

Towards a Pluralistic System of Social Provisioning for Kenya

To provide information and an analysis of social services provided in Kenya and make recommendations on how social services can be organized and financed to increase their efficiency and sustainability. The specific objectives were: (1) To identify main providers of key public services within the government sector, private sector and various NGO sub-sectors, and trace their size and evolution patterns. (2) To identify and describe institutions responsible for social provision of private services to the public during periods of vulnerability and to assess their evolution over time. (3) Use the information obtained about the institutes described above to assess feasibility of a decentralised and pluralistic social provision system in which the central government would play a key role in coordinating and facilitating provision services by local authorities, civil society and private agents.
