Nairobi, KENYA

On 22 June, the Government of Kenya and the MPTF Office established the Turkana Transformation Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF). A Memorandum of Agreement was signed by Mr. Henry K. Rotich, Cabinet Secretary, National Treasury of Kenya, H.E. Josphat Nanok, Governor of the Turkana County, and Ms. Jennifer Topping, Executive Coordinator of the MPTF Office during a ceremony attended by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kenya, Senior Government Officials, the UN Resident Coordinator of Kenya and other UN Agency representatives as well as Development Partners.

This is the first MPTF established at county level and is expected to be the main funding instrument to mobilize donor and government resources for the “Turkana County- United Nations Joint Programme” developed in 2014 to achieve development results in the Turkana County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP) and in line with Kenya’s Vision 2030.
