Engaging with the Budget: Improving the Readability and Usability of the Kenyan Executive Budget

In 2013, a group of graduate students from the London School of Economics, working with the International Budget Partnership, did an assessment of Kenya’s budget along four dimensions: Process; Content; Presentation; and Accessibility.  A full report was produced, outlining 35 recommendations that will improve the transparency of the Kenya budget by making it more readable and user-friendly for citizens and CSOs.  The report was broken down into four chapters so that CSOs can find the chapter that is most useful to their work.  A full list of the recommendations can be found at www.internationalbudget.org/kenya.
