Created in December 2000, the International Centre for Governance and Development was formed as a synergistic hub of excellence. Through collaborative expertise and innovative programming, the centre seeks to address aspects of governance and development in three key areas: capacity building for legal and judicial reform; knowledge development on market economy and social development interrelationships; and policy analysis for good governance.
In July 2001, with funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), NDI began implementation of a program to strengthen the capacity of political parties to represent the shared interests of Kenyan citizens and civil society.
