This project will support and form part of the Kenya's Governance, Justice, Law and Order Sector (GJLOS) reform programme, which was launched by the Government in the framework of its Short-term Priorities Plan (STPP). This project applies lessons learned from other countries and is a replication of a project model successfully implemented in Nigeria. The project will conduct an assessment of performance needs and capacity of the Kenyan Judiciary and based thereon will offer technical assistance to selected courts in three provinces of the country, which will serve as a pilot. At the end of the pilot phase a National anti-corruption strategy will be developed.
