...The Constitution of Kenya and The Kenya Vision 2030 and its Medium-Term Plans provide the foundation for the preparation of the County Integrated Development Plans(CIDPs) for all the 47 Counties in the Republic of Kenya. The purpose of this CIDP is to provide the framework for socioeconomic development as prioritized by stakeholders in the County. The Second Vihiga County Integrated Development Plan has been modelled on the framework provided by the Third Medium Term Plan and the Kenya Vision 2030. The Kenya Vision 20130 aims at transforming Kenya into a newly industrialized middle-income country providing high quality life to all its citizens by the year 2030. The Vision is based on three pillars: Economic, Social and Political Pillars. The Pillars are supported by key enablers and macro foundations of the Vision. For each of the pillars and the key enablers, macro foundations, priority areas have been identified to drive the aspirations of the Vision. The Vision also identified a number of flagship projects to be implemented across the country for all sectors and this CIDP has identified flagship projects and programmes that will be implemented to help in attaining the national vision. The projects and programmes in this CIDP were identified through public participation fora as well as consultation on the County Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) and The Third Medium Term Plan. This CIDP was developed around seven priority areas that will provide the focus for implementation in the next five years. The priority areas include: promotion of good governance and eradicating corruption in the county; developing an educated, skilled and knowledgeable society; creating opportunities for youth employment and wealth creation through Agri-business, Entrepreneurship, Technology and Innovation; Promoting primary healthcare and clean water and sanitation as the foundation for a healthy County;Developing local industry, strategic partnerships and a reliable transport and communication infrastructure network to spar growth in the county; Promoting Sustainable development and Conservation of our Environment and promoting County unity and public participation in government-led development initiatives.During the plan period, Green Economy strategies that aims at reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities will be pursued. Production that is low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive will be adopted. To this end, the County shall promote use of solar energy, biogas production technology, organic farming, sustainable infrastructural development and natural resource management. It is expected that increased public participation during projects/programmes identification, planning, implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation will help enhance the goal of devolution which is to empower citizens to exercise their democratic rights to realize social, political and economic development.
