Counties to Benefit from Informal Settlements Project
Phase two of the Kenya Informal Settlements Improvement Project (KISIP) is set to begin in July of this year. The initiative is a continuation of the program that was launched in 2011 under a partnership between the Kenyan government, the World bank, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) and the Agence Française de Dévelopement (AFD).
Phase one of the project saw a total of 1.069 million citizens benefitting from infrastructural investments and tenure regularization. The objective of the Informal Settlements Improvement Project is to improve living conditions in informal settlements in selected municipalities in Kenya.
The project has received a funding of KSh. 16.5 billion to be deployed across several counties in the country. The beneficiary counties of the second phase of the project will include Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Nakuru, Machakos, Nyeri, Garisa, Embu, Kiambu and others.
