Training Workshop on District Regional Development Planning and Implementation
27 Nov 2003 - 28 Nov 2003
Nyahururu, Kenya


The broad objectives of the workshop are to: (a) discuss implementation of Nyandarua district regional development plan; (b) exchange experiences gained and lessons learnt from Nyandarua capacity building programme; (c) identify and discuss follow-up activities and; (d) identify possible district(s) where the Nyandarua experience could be replicated. Already, the Physical Planning Department has requested UNCRD Africa Office to explore the possibilities of replicating the programme in a district to be selected in the semi-arid region. Unlike Nyandarua which is in a highland region, districts in the semi-arid region of Kenya are facing daunting challenges pertaining to resource development and environmental management.
