In addition the EU provides some funding to Kenya for other cross-cutting activities, such as support to strengthen the National Treasury's role as the national authorising officer of development funding for the country.
Kenya also benefits from funding from various other EU programmes that address particular topics at a regional (multiple-country) or global level. For example, the production of Kenyan films may receive funding from the ACP Cultures Plus programme.
