The Constitution of Kenya promulgated in 2010 provides for the establishment of a two-tieredgovernment in a devolved system of governance. Devolution has created County Governmentswith distinct functions and responsibilities for the development of Counties. The Taita Tavetasecond-generation County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP-II) 2018-2022 was generatedin line with legal requirements such as the County Government Act, 2012 and the PublicFinance Management Act that stipulate that counties should develop five-year developmentplans for effective, efficient and prudent use of public resources.The second-generation Taita Taveta County Integrated Development Plan 2018-22 wassuccessfully prepared under the executive stewardship of the County Executive CommitteeMembers in close collaboration with departmental Sector Working Groups (SWGs), CivilSociety Organizations, Community-based groups and the private sector.The preparation of this CIDP adopted a consultative approach with greater emphasis on publicparticipation in order to capture the peoples priority needs and ownership of the countydevelopment programs.Equally important to note is that, this CIDP has also been aligned to national plans, inclusiveof Kenya Vision 2030, its Medium Term Plans and National Spatial Plans as well asinternational commitments such as the Sustainable Development Goals to achieve the generaleconomic growth of the country.The purpose of this CIDP is to provide reference for the County Government, Sectors and otherstakeholders in implementing the county policies, projects and programs effectively. It istherefore my expectation that it will enhance the realization of the objectives of the county tobe competitive and reliable.I wish to acknowledge the role played by the CEC Finance and Economic Planning, the CIDPII secretariat, sector working groups and other stakeholders inclusive of the county citizensthemselves - for their immense contribution to the generation of this development plan.
