Infographic: Kenya Poverty & Equity Assessment 2023


The "Kenya Poverty and Equity Assessment 2023" by the World Bank reports that Kenya has seen robust GDP growth, positively impacting living standards, but this progress is unevenly distributed across the country. Rural and arid areas, particularly, face higher poverty rates and limited access to services such as water, sanitation, and education. The poor are predominantly in low productivity jobs, and despite progressive fiscal policies, poverty remains a significant challenge. The report recommends connecting the poor to economic growth, enhancing resilience to environmental shocks, and implementing supportive fiscal policies to make growth more inclusive.
