Click to Download »

The County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP) is a plan prepared by all counties in Kenya to guide development over a five-year period. Kenya’s Public Finance Management Act provides that no public funds shall be appropriated outside a county’s planning framework. The CIDP should contain information on development priorities that inform the annual budget process, particularly the preparation of annual development plans, the annual county fiscal strategy papers, and the annual budget estimates.

This guide examines how to read and analyze a CIDP and is useful during the preparation, validation, and approval stages of the CIDP process. The nine key questions can be used to highlight elements that a CIDP should have. The questions may also be useful to organizations engaging with the public prior to county government forums on the CIDP.
