The Kenya Vision 2030 aims to make Kenya a middle-income country by 2030. The delivery of that target is driven by a series of 5-year Medium Term Plans (MTPs) and 5-year County Integrated Development Plans (CIDPs). This is the second CIDP for Vihiga County for the period 2018-22.
The Vision 2030 is supported by three contextual pillars: the economic pillar, the social pillar and the political pillar. The three pillars are anchored on foundations of national transformation.
The Constitution entrenches devolution that plays a major role in service delivery and give all Kenyans key social and economic rights. In August 2017, the Vihiga County citizenry elected a new government, whose policy manifesto “Transforming Vihiga into a county with optimum socio-economic and political sustainability and an equitable and secure society” highlights the County Government’s priorities over the next five years. This CIDP has been formulated considering both the Constitution and the priorities of the County Government’s manifesto.
