Centre for Enhanced Democracy and Good Governance (CEDGG)

Nakuru  CEDGG advocates for evidence-based Public Participation in county planning and budgeting

CEDGG has been successful in mobilizing members of the community to follow up on the case of Bondeni Health Facility Management and implementation of Ward Development Projects. CEDGG also took the lead in developing 18 Memoranda which were presented during the budget forums for MTEF Budget 2015/16. In partnership with other organized groups, CEDGG also submitted a memoranda to the Budget and Appropriation Committee of the County Assembly.

The above sets of action resulted in improved relationship between citizens and MCAs, 150% increase in citizen participation during the budget process compared to the previous year and most of the citizens proposals were captured in the original MTEF Budget estimates 2015/16.

CEDGG now works with the County Finance and Planning Office – Budget Office, County Assembly’s Budget and Appropriation Committee, Justice and Legal Affairs Committee of the County Assembly and the CSOs network on Nakuru.
