This 2017 Kwale County Fiscal Strategy Paper (CFSP) is prepared in accordance with the provisions ofSection 117 of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA), 2012. The strategy paper specifies theKwale County broad strategic priorities and policy goals which will inform the financial year (FY)2017/18 budget and the medium term. It further gives the forecasts on revenues and expenditures and thesector spending limits as a basis for the FY 2017/18 budget and the medium term. In the preparation ofthis FY 2017/18 CFSP, the technical team took into account views of the public, the Commission onRevenue Allocation, the National Treasury, Office of the Controller of Budget, the Civil SocietyOrganizations( CSOs) and other interested persons and groups.This 2017 CFSP takes into cognizance the reality of scarce resources compared to a myriad ofdevelopment challenges which continue to derail our development goals. In a bid to ensure resources areallocated to programmes with the greatest benefit to citizens, our fiscal policy aims at curtailing nonpriority expenditures and shifting these resources to our development priorities thereby ensuringefficiency and effectiveness in public spending.Over the past two years our county has experienced failed rainfall in most parts leading to prolongeddrought and its devastating effects. As we strategise for the financial year 2017/18 budget and themedium term, we shall recognize the effects of climate change and put up effective measures to minimizethem. The laid down strategies will be gender responsive and we will ensure that all our priorities andprogrammes are gender sensitive in the FY 2017/2018 budget and the medium term. We further proposefar reaching policy priorities and programs which will ensure rapid transformation of the countyeconomy and realization of Kenya's Vision 2030.This FY 2017/18 CFSP will continue the implementation of our key strategic priorities mentioned in ourcounty blue print- the County Integrated Development Plan 2013-2017. We have had successes in ourkey sectors of education, health, infrastructure, water, agriculture and others, though challenges remain.In the upcoming budget FY 2017/18 and the medium term, we will build on the successes while at thesame time address the challenges which continue to impede our transformation agenda.KWALE COUNTY TREASURY Page iiThe preparation of this 2017 CFSP coincides with the preparation of the third Medium Term Plan( MTPIII) of the Kenya Vision 2030 for the period 2018 -2022.It is thus imperative to link the county policygoals and strategic objectives to those of the Kenya Vision 2030. As we will be reviewing our firstIntegrated Development Plan CIDP 2013-2017 , we shall devise appropriate strategic priorities whichwill build on the successes made thus far in the implementation of development programmes andmainstream them to the National policy goals and strategic objectives mentioned in the 2017 NationalBudget Policy Statement (BPS).We shall endeavor to monitor closely and evaluate carefully theimplementation of our priority programs so as to realize greater and sustainable socio economicdevelopment.The Kenyan economy was projected to grow by 6.0 percent in 2016 and 6.5 per cent over the mediumterm. This was to be sustained by suitable structural reforms and the continued investment in macroprojects in infrastructure. These coupled with a favorable macroeconomic environment would spurgrowth in agriculture, trade, industry, tourism and other sectors of the economy. Benefits of the favorablemacro-economic environment are expected to trickle down and accelerate growth in major sectors of thecounty economy. As the economy continues to be resilient, risks still remain. These risks includeprolonged drought due to failures in both long and short rains, threat of climate change effects, unstableand fluctuating world oil prices, weakening of advanced economies and increasing insecurity. We willmonitor closely the situation and proactively put up mitigating strategies to avert the effects of such risks.The United Nations Summit held towards the end of 2015 adopted the 2030 Agenda for SustainableDevelopment with 17 Sustainable Development Goals( SDGs) to end poverty, fight inequality andinjustice and tackle climate change by 2030.The SDGs have come up after the expiry of the 8Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).This paper will attempt to link and mainstream the SDGs bydomesticating and localizing them in our strategic priorities so as to achieve greater and sustainablesocio -economic development.
