Executive Summary

The Government of Kenya through the National Social Protection Secretariat (SPS), has established a Community of Practitioners (CoP) for the Social Protection actors in Kenya. 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. The main objective of this group will be to provide a forum for sharing of knowledge and skills, exchange of information, mentorship and sharing of best practices in Social Protection. It is possible that such level of interaction will help in enhancing coordination and building efficiency and visibility in the sector. In developing the Community of Practice, it is necessary to define the domain, organize the community and establish the practice. This report is a summary of discussions during a two-day CoP Stakeholder Consultation Workshop that was held on April 26-27, 2018 at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies and whose purpose was to build consensus on the elements.
