This handbook is an attempt to provide a brief and succinct discussion of the process and issues regarding Kenya’s budget. It brings into focus the importance of then National Budget as a significant policy tool which the government can use to improve the well-veing of Kenyans. It takes the reader through the major phases of the budget process, identifying the institutions and provisions that are at play at every stageand posing pertinent questions for enhanced understanding.
The invaluable lessons learnt from the strategic planning exercises, and the enormous demands IEA-Kenya continues to receive from other constituencies, necessitated the writing of this manual. It is published to aide community facilitators to run successful constituency strategic planning workshops and to produce apt constituency strategic plans. The primary focus of these plans is the prioritizationof key performance areas to achieve the highest impact in collaboration with all development actors. It is therefore not a tool that aides the planning for one specificfund like CDF.
