That Kenya has a large and growing youthful population is an indisputable matter. The salience of this demographic feature found empirical confirmation during the National Population and Housing Census held in 2009. With the established fact of a youthful population come a number of certainties and uncertainties in the medium to long term for the country. Because Scenarios building provide a useful methodology for examining and holding conversations during periods of uncertainty, the opportunity opened up for the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA-Kenya) to undertake its second Scenarios project based on examining the question of a large and growing youthful population.

The objective of this manual is to raise awareness of the existing opportunities and avenues for the public to engage throughout the national budget cycle of Kenya as well as provide an overview of the principles underlying participatory budgeting and further outline best practices in participatory budgeting. It is expected that cumulatively through this manual civil society and generally public participation in the budget making processes would increase and the degree of inclusivity in decision making processes enhanced. Ultimately civil society members and local citizens would be well equipped with information and knowledge to be able to fully participate in budget making and be able to meaningfully influence public service delivery, planning and allocation of public resources. Additionally, it is assumed that CSOs representatives who participate in training on this manual would in turn pass on the skills and knowledge so gained to empower their constituents and the ripple effect is expected to bear inclusitivity in budgeting practices.

"KEYS" -   short form for Kenya Youth Scenarios - is a project by young people aimed at extrapolating what that conversation might look like. IEA-Kenya used the scenarios building methodology to conduct research and analysis in order to understand various forces at play in the youth sector, how they interact and what they may produce in the future. This booklet is therefore a documentation of what Kenya’s youth perceive to be the possible scenarios Kenya will have to face by 2031.
