Dates of existence


The York-Kenya Project was initiated by the Government of Kenya and the Government of Canada through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). CIDA arranged for York University to administer the project. The project had three components: the establishment of a Planning and Evaluation Unit in the Kenyan Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning for which York provided a field staff; a Training Programme, through which Kenyans were educated at York to take over the Planning Unit and act as future teachers of economic planning; and a research component on particular topics proposed by the Kenyan Government, the York field staff, or the university.
