  • Improve management of knowledge, encourage learning and promote innovation within the SP sector in Kenya: Currently, there are numerous monitoring and evaluation studies whose findings, and recommendations are hardly shared.
  • As part of the CoP, a knowledge /document sharing repository will be established and will be complemented by need/demand driven brown bag sessions through which partners will share outcomes of studies and other new learning.
  • Strengthen existing linkages and diversify partnerships at both levels of government, and with actors across all the pillars of social protection: This would particularly be important in growing synergies in implementation, strategies and resourcing. The CoP will be instrumental in bringing together the various Government institutions/departments, NGOs, Donors, Private sector, Academia, Consultants, Media, and Think tanks.
  • The CoP will create a favourable environment which helps to identify and produce additional ideas and areas of intervention since it facilitates communication and collaboration processes between institutions.
  • Contribute to the growth of Social Protection Policy Instruments: The CoP will act as a specialist interest group that will help to identify policy gaps and influence the improvements on the SP policy and operational frameworks.
  • In particular, it will provide an invaluable opportunity to collate the collective results, and use emerging evidence as justify any need for changes in strategy or policy.
  • Improve the quality of social protection services through the promotion of standards and guidelines in the implementation of social protection programs: This will address the existing disparities of practices and standards within the Social Protection sector and set clear guidelines for domains of social protection such as Graduation, Transfer Values, Targeting, Grievances and feedback channels, etcetera.
  • In addition, the CoP will enable the sector to develop and adopt best practice models arising from studies or experiences from the partners.
  • The Community of Practice is intended to be a collaborative and interactive network of organizations and individuals involved in the social protection space in Kenya – with the primary purpose being to create a learning environment within which knowledge is continuously shared in
    ways that strengthen existing interventions, foster new approaches, and address emerging challenges.
