This policy framework is envisaged to play an important role in preparing us for negotiations with urban stakeholders and would be built around the key and immediate needs of all people in urban areas. The Policy is envisaged to strengthen the governance, development planning, urban investments, and delivery of infrastructure services. Finally the policy will also substantially contribute towards poverty reduction, economic growth and faster realization of Kenya’s Vision 2030.
