dc.description.abstractIn this paper all the eight Millennium development goals will be evaluated and then mapped to the success they have achieved in Kenya. Our evaluation will be based on each goal and the impact each goal has had in Kenya. Millennium development goals are a set of eight goals that are to be achieved by 2015 in lieu of world’s development challenges. In 2000, 189 nations took an oath to liberate people from extreme poverty and deprivation, which later became the eight Millennium Development Goals to be achieved by 2015. The United Nations Development Program has given increased focus to this initiative under the Kenya development program. The program supports initiatives of transparency, accountability, and effectiveness in the system. The MDGs provide the government with a common framework for structuring policies and practices. The framework facilitates speed and efficiency in complying with the MDG spirit in planning, budgeting, and monitoring at all levels of government. The MDGs also bring clarity to the shared and individual roles and responsibilities of key actors working toward the realization of MDGs by working with a network of international organizations to put their resources and expertise in the most strategic and efficient way possible to support and sustain the efforts of partners at the international and national levels and the private sector to engage in improving human conditions by the target year of 2015. (Kenya millennium assessment) This thesis examines the range of investment efforts the government has undertaken to achieve the millennium development goals. We analyze the government initiatives aimed at meeting the MDGs against the realities of what it would take to realize the goals.en_US
