The DGASU provides consultancy and advisory services relating to governance and democracy. These services range from legislative drafting, legal research, policy formulation, evaluation and monitoring services, development of skills, capacity building, awareness creation, advocacy and development progammes.

 

In Kenya for instance, the governance structure has been reorganized by the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 (COK, 2010). On the hand, the economic landscape is being redefined by the Vision 2030, Kenya’s economic blue print. Accordingly, there is need for government bodies and institutions to align their laws and policies to the COK, 2010 and Vision 2030. To this end PAMC’s DGASU has assembled a team of experts from diverse backgrounds equipped with various skills and capabilities to assist government entities and institutions undertake democracy, governance and economic policy and legislative reforms and related services necessary to meet the objectives of COK, 2010 and Vision 2030.

 

 

The projects we undertake are wide ranging and include good governance, civil service reform, institutional capacity building, decentralization, economic reform, and educational and social development. PAMC has thus successfully undertaken consultancy to research and propose reviews to the Central Bank of Kenya Act, on behalf of the Central Bank of Kenya and on behalf of Transparency International-Kenya, a consultancy to research and write a proposed Bill for an Act of Parliament to Prescribe a Framework for procurement of goods and asset disposal to give effect to Article 227of the Constitution.

Women & Youth Economic Empowerment Services (YWEES)

Youth and women economic empowerment polices have been introduced by developing as well as developed countries and are aimed at addressing issues related to unemployment and poverty reduction. The objectives of such policies include;

  • To increase in value, numbers, and variety women and youth owned enterprises in all the sectors of the economy with the aim of increasing employment and reducing poverty;

  • To increase entrepreneurial culture, business managerial capacities, technical skills and talents among women and young people, thereby contributing to sustainable human development;

  • To increase savings and investment among women and youth through encouraging them to establish cooperative enterprises and other forms of enterprises

  • To raise the profile of women and youth owned enterprises and young entrepreneurs;

  • To remove any barriers that prevents young men and women from starting and growing their own businesses; and

  • To increase access to market, finance and non-financial support to youth owned enterprises

However, Youth and Women Economic Empowerment programmes can only succeed with the support of government creating a conducive environment through the formulation and implementation of a national youth and/or women economic policy instruments. These instruments should aim at mainstreaming women and youth in all existing policies, programmes and institutions. The support programme given to the youth and women should cover the entire spectrum of support from non-financial to financial support. To realise these goals, governments must partner with the private sector in economically empowering women and youth.

PAMC’s YWEES, has now assembled a team of experts from diverse professional backgrounds equipped with various skills and capabilities to help provide advisory and support services to women and young people by encouraging them to start new businesses and building their skills in employability and entrepreneurship and providing them with business support services.
