The Common Programme Framework to End Drought Emergencies is the product of a series of discussions between the Government of Kenya and its development partners which took place between October 2013 and August 2014. It represents the first phase of a ten-year programme to end drought emergencies by 2022. The Framework has three areas of emphasis: eliminating the conditions that perpetuate vulnerability, enhancing the productive potential of the region, and strengthening institutional capacity for effective risk management.
The Common Programme Framework focuses on the 23 most drought-prone counties in Kenya. Its implementation will be led by the relevant parts of the national and county governments, working in ways that strengthen synergy between sectors and agencies and deepen accountability to drought-affected communities. Six complementary documents containing a detailed description of each pillar of the Framework are also available.
