...The unveiling of the Lamu County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP) for 2018 -2022 is a historic milestone in our countys development pathway. It represents a strategic effort by the County Government of Lamu to drive its development agenda and spur overall economic growth. The spirit of this CIDP borrows heavily from the Countrys development blueprint -the Vision 2030, the African Union Agenda 2063, the East African Vision 2050 and it also builds on the experiences, successes and lessons learned during the implementation of the first CIDP (2013 2017). To maximize our countys economic growth our Plan is aligned to take advantage of the regions economic strategies embodied in the Vision 2030 such as the projects affiliated to the Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia-Transport (LAPPSET) Corridor. The plan is also well anchored and closely linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Lamu County Spatial Plan as well as an other sectoral plans that exist at both the county and national level. These investments are designed to: create high quality and well-connected places that provide Lamu residents with a most conducive environment to live, work, play and learn. The investments will also accelerate business growth by connecting existing and new enterprises to County resources for commercialization, and development of products to new and growing markets. Alongside these programs is a number of life changing flagship projects that will spur economic growth and open up employment opportunities for most of our youths. The flagship project for the county includes among others universal health care coverage for 20,000 households, digitization of all health facilities in the county, promoting food security through enhanced investment in irrigated ate agriculture and overall infrastructure development among others. Worth mentioning is the strategic location of these projects to ensure that every Ward has aspiration to look forward to within the next five years of my government.The CIDP adopts a programme based planning approach to enhance allocation of resources to related activities with a view to accelerate the desired growth by linking specific sectoral programmes to well defined targets and outcomes for the planning period. This approach will not only provide a mechanism for assessing the effectiveness and efficiency in the allocation of financial resources but will also enable the measuring of the output and outcomes of the defined programmes/projects at the end of the implementation phase. As such, we will seek to measure who received what kind of investment, where it was invested and the targeted beneficiary.
