Tracking subnational government investments in disaster risk reduction in Kenya

Kenya is prone to natural and human inflicted hazards, including floods, drought, epidemics, conflict and fires. Losses resulting from these disasters can be economic, environmental and social, and reduce the coping abilities of the affected population and increase vulnerability to recurring disasters. Investments in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) are essential to minimise losses from future disasters and promote sustainable development. This report assesses the level of investment in DRR programmes in four counties in Kenya for the periods of 2016/17 to 2018/19 to evaluate the extent to which programme budgets are aligned to DRR objectives. We have based our analysis on county budget documents (2016/17–2018/19) to evaluate the extent to which programme budgets are aligned to DRR objectives.
