Kenya has been at the centre of the Agenda 2030 process. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have ignited the growth of a wide range of new development partnerships, from international networks to community-led multi-stakeholder alliances. One country in particular that stands out above the crowd in recognizing the need for transformative partnerships is Kenya.
As a frontline state in the negotiations that led to the adoption of the SDGs, Kenya is at the forefront in translating these global ambitions into domestic imperatives, aligning budgets and programmes of the State with the SDGs. Notable is the focus of the current administration on the Big 4 Agenda: ensuring affordable housing, food security, manufacturing for employment creation and universal healthcare for Kenya’s citizens, underlining the SDG’s key objectives.
The move to more sustainable events in Kenya is a long-term commitment that will be prioritized by Kenya Convention Bureau through creating awareness of sustainability practices in delivering events throughout Kenya’s MICE value chain.
Kenya Convention Bureau has adopted strong policies on integrating SMEs and promoting gender, youth and people with disabilities equity practices into delivering the MICE industry throughout Kenya.
