Local Content Policy Dialogue: Developing a Sustainable In-Country Value Addition Strategy: Real-Time Policy Options for Kenya’s Petroleum Sector

Jointly hosted with Oxfam, Kenya Civil Society Platform on Oil and Gas and National Oil Cooperation of Kenya.

Overview

Local content is an evolving concept in Kenya, the basis being to encourage the use of local labour, goods and services at different stages of the extractives value chain. However, as Kenyans are anxious to obtain the greatest benefits from the discovered petroleum and mineral resources, lack of an overarching local content framework has made it difficult to achieve the desired goals. Conversations have also been sparked around the term “local” with different stakeholders taking different approaches which now form the substance of the different local content legislative, regulatory and policy proposals. Spurred by these conversations, the EB hosted the policy dialogue to incentivise dialogue around the concept of local content in Kenya’s extractives sector, drawing on different legal and policy scenarios.

The forum was guided by a research paper that focuses on promoting in-country value addition through four main pillars: local employment opportunities, in-country spending and procurement of local goods and services, technology and skills transfer, and local participation through equity and management.
