UN-Habitat Support to Sustainable Urban Development in Kenya – Volume 1
This report is based on the outcomes of the capacity development trainings that were undertaken in support to the implementation of the on-going Kenya Municipal Programme. The programme is mainly financed by the World Bank at a cost of US$ 129 million with cofinancing from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida); it is executed and implemented by the Kenya Government, through the Ministry of Land, Housing and Urban Development(MLHUD). UN-Habitat’s support to the Kenya Municipal Programme is through capacity development that entails training in various key issues in urban planning and development.
This report details outcomes of the first phase of the training that was done for the Kenya Municipal Programme Counties Clusters III (Machakos, Embu & Kiambu) and IV (Nyeri & Nakuru). This section of the report provides a brief background of the Kenya Municipal Programme and UN-Habitat’s support to the Programme, and draws attention to the on-going global debate on the Habitat Agenda, Habitat III1and Urban-Rural Linkages – a key theme of the 25th Governing Council (GC25) of UN-Habitat held in April2015.
