ODA and Private Sector Development in Kenya
"Since 1996 Kenya has attracted private investments into the country’s economic infrastructure sectors including telecommunications, energy, transport, water and sewerage. The investments have an important role in securing private sector participation in infrastructure development as well developing relevant instrument to make the private sector a consistent financier and partner of government in infrastructure development in the country. The provision of adequate and high quality infrastructure services remains the biggest challenge to development Kenya. Currently, the Government of Kenya faces a growing gap between public investment needs and available resources to finance them. Indeed, the Government and development partners have over the years been the main financiers of public infrastructure and services. This has however been limited by the level of resources available from these sources."
