Chapter eleven of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010, provides fordevolvement of key government functions to the county level. Inparticular, the fourth Schedule of the constitution, clearly sets outthe distribution of functions between the National Government andthe County Governments. Article 220 (2) (a) of the constitutionplaces a key responsibility on the National Government in terms ofprescription of the structure of the county development plans andbudget. Amongst the enabling pieces of legislation contemplated inarticle 220(2) (a) is the County Government Act. 2012 where in Section 108 envisions a five-yearCounty Integrated Development Plan with clear goals and objectives; an implementation plan withclear outcomes; provisions for monitoring and evaluation; and clear reporting mechanisms. Itsagainst this backdrop that my Government presents the second generation County Integrateddevelopment plan for the plan period 2018-2022.The second Nyeri County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP) 2018-2022, was prepared to guideplanning and budgeting at county level.

The CIDP is expected to contribute to the realization of aspirationsof Kenya Vision 2030 and its Medium Term Plans and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) atthe county level. The second CIDP will build on the achievements of the first CIDP which wasimplemented in the period 2013 to 2017.This CIDP articulates my governments priorities and outlines the policies, programs and projectswhich the county government intends to implement during the five years from 2018 to 2022 in orderto improve health care provision, food security, road network and the living standard of the residentsof the County as well as job creation, especially for the youth.
