UN-Habitat 2-day Rapid Planning Studio, support to Kenya Municipal Programme for Kakamega, Kericho and Uasin Gishu Counties
Habitat has been providing various training to support governments towards achieving sustainable urban development. In 2012, UN-Habitat developed a new training methodology called Rapid Planning Studio (RPS) to help cities and local governments develop practical, feasible approaches to implementing urban planning interventions. This methodology has successfully been applied to support UN-Habitat’s capacity development activities in Kenya, Rwanda, Mozambique, and the Philippines.
The 2-day training for Kenya Municipal Programme (KMP) Cluster V counties was conducted based on this RPS methodology, to provide decision makers and planners in the counties with enhanced capacity to actively engage with their respective process of formulating an Integrated Strategic Urban Development Plan (ISUDP).
