Transparency International Kenya (TI-Kenya) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1999 in Kenya with the aim of developing a transparent and corruption free society through good governance and social justice initiatives. TI-Kenya is one of the autonomous chapters of the global Transparency International movement that are all bound by a common vision of a world in which government, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption.
Through the Climate Governance Integrity Programme (CGIP), TI-Kenya seeks to enhance transparency, accountability and participation in climate governance in Kenya.
