Approach to Intergovernmental Transfers in Kenya

This chapter examines the case study on the local governmental finance framework in Kenya, with a focus on IGTs. It begins with a discussion of the historical context of the municipal structure and then examines the current decentralisation framework. This framework includes the functions to be carried out by subnational governments and the funds available for these activities. A detailed overview of particular IGT funds in Kenya is included. The chapter concludes by setting out the strengths and weaknesses of the decentralised framework in Kenya.
