Kenya Urban Support Program Project Overview


Post on 28 August 2019 by Super User in Lands Housing & Physical Planning

 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. 

 Project Implementation Strategy 

 Expenditure areas 

 The expenditure is divided into two themes i.e. Urban Institutional Grant & Urban Development Grant. 

 Under the UIG the county will get a grant of 50 Million while in the UDG, the towns will be awarded different amounts with Rongo, Awendo & Migori getting 

 1,639,360, 2,174,840 & 1324680 USD annually respectively.

UIG Expenditures

  • Urban planning activities 
  • Training costs (e.g., for Municipal Board members or other relevant county staff) 
  • Workshops and learning events 
  • Meeting costs, including local travel allowances, refreshments (e.g., related to the development of Municipal Charter and other urban planning activities) 
  • Experience sharing and peer-learning activities with other counties
  •  Incremental office operating costs (stationery, etc.) 
  • Office equipment and furniture (for urban boards and administrations), and 
  • Short term consultancy costs (e.g. related to the establishment and strengthening of urban institutions). 

UDG Expenditures 

  •  Waste management (liquid and solid).
  •  Storm water drainage. 
  • Connectivity (roads, non-motorized transport facilities, and street and security lights). 
  • Urban social and economic infrastructure (urban greenery and public spaces) and 
  • Fire and disaster management.

GOVERNORS SPEECH AT LAUNCH OF KUSP

Post on 28 August 2019 by Super User in Lands Housing & Physical Planning

 Fellow county men and women, today marks a milestone in the history of the county, as we launch the World Bank supported projects in our urban centers of Migori, Awendo and Rongo. Our towns have grown and continue to do so against low provision of the associated infrastructural services.

ON 

 THE LAUNCH OF KENYA URBAN SUPPORT PROGRAMME 

 ON 

 JANUARY 25TH, 2019 

 AT MIGORI PROPOSED OMBO MODERN MARKET 


 The Members of Parliament, 

 The Migori County Executive Committee Members, 

 The entire County Government staff of Migori,

 The Honorable Members of the County Assembly of Migori, 

 The Ambassadors, Present 

 The Stakeholders and Project Team, 

 Invited Guests, 

 Ladies and Gentlemen,

Fellow county men and women, today marks a milestone in the history of the county, as we launch the World Bank supported projects in our urban centers of Migori, Awendo and Rongo. Our towns have grown and continue to do so against low provision of the associated infrastructural services

.Before any other item, allow me to take this initial opportunity to strongly thank the World Bank for this significant support. 

Today the World Bank Reports that, by 2030 around 60 % of people will live in urban areas. In Kenya, about 30% of the country’s population lives in urban areas. Urban centres drive economic growth and offer economies of scale in productivity and public investments; they are social melting pots, centres of innovation and drivers of social change. 

 The World Bank through the Kenya Urban Support Programme seeks to support the implementation of the Kenya Urban Programme (KenUP). This 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 urban areas in Kenya. 

 As a county, we are lucky that out of the 59 municipalities being supported, we managed to have three of our municipalities namely Rongo, Awendo & Migori being considered with a total grant of about Kenya shillings 500 Million.

 In the first year of the program, we are going to undertake the following projects in the selected municipalities:


Migori               Construction of Ombo modern market and Ombo access roads

 Kshs 133M 

Awendo          Construction of Awendo public recreational park and upgrading of Awendo township roads to bitumen standards

 Kshs 219M 

 Rongo             Construction of Rongo Bus Park and Upgrading of Rongo township roads to bitumen standards. 

 Kshs 165M

In another program known as IDEAS funded by the European Union, my administration has received grant totaling to around 140 million which will be used to develop sweet potato processing plant in Kuria West Sub County.

Ladies and Gentlemen

Since my first term as the Governor, my administration has consistently underscored the inescapable growth of towns and that the solution to urban problems depends heavily on effective urban planning, infrastructure development and management.

My government in full realization of the importance played by urban planning, initiated the preparation of spatial plans for five towns (Migori, Isebania, Rongo, Awendo & Sori). Initially, these urban centers had outdated Integrated Strategic Urban Development Plans (ISUDP). I am happy now to inform you that all these plans have now been developed and are in their final stages. In addition, my administration has devoted resources to support urban infrastructural development in this financial year.

Fellow citizens 

 The implementation of these projects will help us to realize sustainable development goal number 11 which ensures that cities and other human settlements are safe, inclusive, resilient and sustainable and reverse the urbanization of poverty.

Ladies and Gentlemen 

 My administration has in the past been lauded for being the best in National Cohesion and Integration in Kenya. I categorically state that we have to appreciate the ethnic diversity, unity and cohesion that we enjoy and use it as a recipe for cohesion in order for us to develop.

 Fellow county men and women, as a family we have to acknowledge that life is a relay race and it is our shared responsibility to do that which we must by creating a better society for the current and future generations.

 I would like to acknowledge the enormous support that our county has received from the World Bank in this journey. 

 With these few remarks, I now declare the projects officially launched. 

 Thank you.

 God bless you, God bless Migori County.

It comes against the background of a myriad of urban challenges including urban sprawl, urban decay, inadequate housing, uncontrolled informal settlements and activities, inadequate services and infrastructure and lack of an appropriate framework to guide urban growth.
