Overview

The European Union spends about 100 million euros per year on development cooperation to Kenya

Together, the European Union and its Member States are the biggest suppliers of development assistance to Kenya.

Based on Kenya’s development strategy Vision 2030, the following sectors have been identified as priorities for European Commission funding:

The EU's development assistance to Kenya contributes to varying degrees to the Government's Big Four development priorities for 2017-2022: manufacturing; universal healthcare; affordable housing, and food security.

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.
