In 2007, the Kenyan government launched a new long-term development strategy, Vision 2030, after a broad-based consultation process with development partners. Vision 2030 sets a goal for Kenya to become a middle-income country, with a Human Development Index (HDI) score of 0.7 by 2030.
The framework is based on economic, social and political pillars, with the overarching aim of bringing about a structural transformation of the country. Kenya has put human resource development – in particular education – at the heart of its development strategy.
In line with Vision 2030, President Kenyatta unveiled his ‘Big Four’ agenda in December 2017 for his second term in office, which centres around food security, universal health coverage, affordable housing and manufacturing, with a focus on delivering results by the end of his second mandate in 2022.
