The Reducing Insecurity and Violent Extremism in Northern and Coastal regions of Kenya (REINVENT) programme is a five-year intervention supported by UKAid. Led by Tetra Tech International Development and delivered in partnership with Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), REINVENT works across five regions and 18 counties to improve security and stability, enable investment, inclusive growth and equitable service delivery.
REINVENT aims to deliver “increased security and stability in northern Kenya, enabling investment, inclusive growth and equitable service delivery” by working in partnership with the Government of Kenya and downstream partners to provide “improved police performance to provide security locally” and “safe and secure communities in northern and coastal Kenya”.
