Civic Participation Laws & Implementation Policies as the Basis for Effective Participation

KAS in partnership with the Mobilization Agency for Paralegal Communities in Africa (MAPACA) organized a workshop in Makueni County on 4th & 5th July to review the county public participation laws and policies. This informative platform was attended by members of Makueni County Assembly, county oversight forums and civil society members. The forum examined the efforts made in the county to improve public participation and interrogated the problematic issues surrounding those laws and policies. These discussions informed the development of an action plan which has citizens’ input for debate and consideration in the ongoing public participation bill development in Makueni County.
