Science & Technology Overview

The third pillar, environment, is greatly impacted by science and technology. Kenya’s current development blueprint, the Vision 2030, gives prominence to science, technology, business and innovation as critical factors that will boost her development. Kenya, however, faces a number of challenges in achieving this goal.

These include: lack of adequate policy, legal & institutional framework to encourage investment in innovation and technology; knowledge gaps; an apathetic consumer base of local technology, and, inadequate infrastructural support including energy and financial backing.

ILEG will focus on the intersection between laws and policies and the wide array of contemporary issues relating to scientific advancement and technological developments that affect the environment and sustainable development.
