The Strengthening County Revenue Management in Kenya: Stocktaking Exercise is a report that details the findings from the stocktaking activity and identifies key areas for support. The report was informed by the need for counties to strengthen their own revenue mobilization and management as a key part of the Government of Kenya’s devolution agenda as specified in the Kenyan constitution. 

The World Bank Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) facilitated technical assistance and capacity support to the Government of Kenya for the transition to devolved government. As part of this initiative, the bank task team carried out a quick stocktaking of the ongoing initiatives by the Government of Kenya at both levels – national and county – and by development partners, to strengthen county revenue management as well as gauge the needs and expectations of a sample of counties regarding the areas that they would like to receive support.
