Welcome to CGD Website

The Centre for Governance and Development (CGD) is a registered policy research and advocacy not-for-profit organization. It envisions an informed and democratic society that is prosperous, equitable and committed to the rule of law. CGD’s mission is to empower citizens, civil society organizations (CSOs), Government, and representative institutions for an equitable and democratic society through partnership building, research, capacity-building and advocacy.

Since its inception in 1993, CGD has been at the forefront in influencing the direction of political and socio-economic transformation in Kenya. It has vast experience in governance and development reforms and has been active in influencing development in these areas. The Centre brings together a highly experienced team of directors and staff from various academic and socio-economic backgrounds.

Partnership building has evolded as CGD’s main strategy in project implementation. The Centre facilitates dialogue and joint actions involving broad coalitions of reform minded actors in Kenya’s public realm on a wide range of issues, for example: gender and extractives, taxation and accountability; political party regulation, management and financing reforms; electoral reforms; agricultural sub-sectors reforms; and regional integration, among others. CGD has convened four coalitions/networks: the Coalition for Accountable Political Financing (CAPF), the National Taxpayers Association (NTA), the Kenya Producers Coalition (KEPCO), and the Elections Observation Group (ELOG). The Centre also belong and actively participates in the activities of other coalitions/networks: the Parliamentary Initiatives Network (PIN); the East African Tax and Governance Network (EATGN); the Kenya Land Alliance (KLA); the Freedom of Information Network (FOI Net); Decentralization and Governance Non-state Actors Network (DEGONSA); the East African Community Non-state Actors (EAC-NSA) Forum; and East African Civil Society Forum (EACSOF).
