It is indeed wonderful to see how Kenya has advanced and their efforts to achieve their plans according to the "Vision 2030". What is also refreshing is to see the Kenyan Government's willingness to publicize the results from their recent Post Disaster Needs Assessment following the 2008-2011 drought. It shows how disasters can affect the overall GDP and the necessity of disaster risk reduction. I sense a noticable shift in attitudes within the country. From the local population's insistence on being recognized to the Government's efforts to address the nation's challenges, Kenya has the chance to truly shine as an example in the East Africa region.
