The KHRC’s draft Planning, Learning, Monitoring and Reporting (PLMR)
Framework/ Manual (September 2013) provides organisationally agreed approaches
and tools for managing programmatic work and documenting institutional results.
During the last twelve months, there has been both increased institutional demands and
consensus on the need for an internal reporting tool and process that is simpler, concise
and results based- mainly, focusing more on what has been achieved(results) and less on
what has been done(activities).
Thus concerted effort has been made to ensure that these standards and expectations are
met in this report. This means, therefore, that this report is by no means exhaustive and
we would urge you to contact KHRC directly if you require further detail.
The report is broken down into five Chapters:
Chapter 1: Dedicated to the profile of the Kenya Human Rights Commission, a statement
from the chairperson and a foreword from the Executive Director.
Chapter 2: Dedicated to the results achieved within the Civil and Political Rights
Programme/ Theme (CPR).
Chapter 3: Dedicated to the results achieved within the Economic and Social Rights
Programme/ Theme (ESR).
Chapter 4: Dedicated to the results achieved within the Equality and Non-Discrimination
Programme/ Theme (END).
Chapter 5: Dedicated to the results achieved within the Institutional Development and
Sustainability Programme/ Theme (IDS).
First, each thematic part presents the key results achieved. This includes but is not limited:
- The actual outcomes and impact (if any)-those planned within the OP and unplanned but
were achieved out of the unforeseen and grasped opportunities.
- The rights holders/ sector networks involved and duty bearers influenced.
Second, it captures an overview of the initiative, key results achieved, challenges and difficulties
experienced and next steps and further actions.
Basically, the report will explain what the KHRC did and what difference it made. Results will be
presented to particularly capture duty bearers; a) commitments - statements, policies and laws,
b) actions/efforts, and c) results for communities.
These correlate to the UN Office of the High Commission for Human Rights
recommendations of using structural, process and outcome indicators of change.
At the same time, the KHRC wants to measure changes in community empowerment and
changes in the relationship between duty bearers and rights holders. The former can be
measured through the use of a power cube.
The latter will look at responsiveness, transparency, and changes to the structures/rules
for decision making. In this way, the KHRC will be measuring results from the duty bearer
(supply), rights holder (demand) and outcomes angles.
This report is dedicated to dozens of human rights defenders who suffered
abominable human rights violations in the hands of state.
