Stakeholders’ Workshop to Review and Finalize the Ewaso Ng’iro North Development Authority (ENNDA) Integrated Regional Development Plan of Kenya
29 Mar 2011 - 31 Mar 2011
Since 2004, the UNCRD Africa Office has been providing technical assistance to the Ewaso Ng’iro North Development Authority (ENNDA) of Kenya to build its capacity in regional development planning and plan preparation. ENNDA is a statutory board, which falls under the Ministry of Regional Development Authorities. The Authority is in charge of planning and implementing regional development policies and programmes in the Ewaso Ng’iro River Basin. The UNCRD Africa Office, in collaboration with its partners, has so far conducted several training workshops, seminars, and field study analyses to upscale the knowledge and skills of the planners of ENNDA and other stakeholders in techniques of data collection and analysis as well as in regional plan preparation. The integrated regional development plan for ENNDA has now been prepared and is ready for publication. However, prior to publishing the regional plan, the UNCRD Africa Office and ENNDA will organize a stakeholders’ workshop to solicit final comments and ensure ownership of the plan by the local community. This participatory process will also ensure the effective implementation of the regional plan in the future.
