Millennium Development Goal 1 and Africa: An Investigation into the Factors That Hindered Its Achievement in Kenya.

Abstract:

The issue of poverty and hunger continues to be a great challenge in the world. The millennium development goals was a framework that was implemented for the purpose of assisting the world towards its endeavors of halving poverty and hunger. The implementation of MDGs in Kenya began in 2002.Critiques have argued that the time set to achieve the MDGs in Africa was unfair given the fact that most African countries were in extreme poverty following the implementation of the IMF and World Bank policies that left most of the regions impoverished. Kenya was not an exception to this predicament. Therefore, the achievement of MDG1 was a major challenge to most countries in Africa. This study is an investigation into the factors that hindered the achievement of MDG1 in Kenya. The study identified that there exists a research gap, given the fact that most studies have paid more attention into the policies implemented into the achievement of the goals in Kenya. The study found out that some of the factors that hindered the achievements of these targets included; corruption, lack of funds, unreliable donors, lack of inclusive economic growth, global financial crises among others. This study will be of great impact in the implementation of SDGs for the purpose of learning from the mistakes of the past for efficient and effective achievement of goals in the future. As John Maynard Keynes asserts, “To understand the present, it is important to have a light of the past for the purpose of the future.”
