The New Partnership for Africa's Development/African Peer Review Mechanism (NEPAD/APRM) Secretariat made an official visit to SRC on October 07, 2016. NEPAD/APRM is undertaking the 2nd country self assessment (CSA) of Kenya, and SRC is one of the stakeholders that will be assessed. NEPAD/APRM sensitized SRC about the review process and it was also out to learn more about the Commission and its mandate.

The actual mission to conduct the CSA will begin on October 24, 2016 and go on for three weeks. This will be followed by preparation of a report that will be presented to the Government for comments before it is forwarded to the Heads of State and Government of the APRM Forum in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in January 2017.

The 2nd CSA is a national exercise for the government of Kenya, which the President, H.E. Hon Uhuru Kenyatta, kicked off on October 4, 2016. APRM is a voluntary governance assessment framework of sharing experiences and reinforcing best practices that lead to political stability, high economic growth and sustainable development. The mechanism has 35 African States.

Kenya was the 3rd country among the member countries to undertake the 1st country review assessment in 2006; the 3rd to complete the APRM process. The goal of the process is to enable countries to undertake reforms which are in line with the NEPAD goals common to Africa countries. Kenya has since tabled several progress reports on the implementation of the National Plan of Action arising from its commitment to APRM. Kenya was among the first four African states with Ghana, Rwanda and Mauritius to accede to the APRM in March 2003.
