Kenya Urban Support Program Project

Kenya Vision 2030 highlights rapid urbanization as one of four key challenges facing the country. However, Kenya is still under-urbanized. Therefore there is potential to leverage urbanization for improving economic opportunities and living conditions. The Government of Kenya has recognized the need to manage urbanization as part of its overall development strategy.

World Bank through KUSP seeks to support the implementation of the Kenya Urban Programme (KenUP), which is the Kenya government’s development strategy emanating from and giving life to the Kenyan National Urban Development Policy (NUDP).

The program is designed to run for five years and aims to establish and strengthen urban institutions to deliver public goods and services for the three urban areas in Migori County namely Rongo, Awendo & Migori. This is done taking cognizance of the role played by urban areas as engines of economic growth, prosperity and modernization. Upon its implementation, the county will be able to tap on the potential of urbanization for sustainable development.
