The National Government in partnership with the World Bank has launched a 100 billion shillings project aimed at enhancing capacity of 10 arid and semi arid counties in Northern Kenya.
The project seeks to ensure access to off grid solar, smart agriculture, water and sanitation, as well as infrastructure development within the vast region.
Dubbed the North and North Eastern Development Initiative, (NEDI) the project targets Mandera, Garissa, Isiolo, Lamu, Marsabit, Samburu, Tana River, Turkana, Wajir and West Pokot counties. The leaders urged donors and investors to inject fresh life into the counties that have suffered marginalisation since independence. They also underscored the need for increasing households’ access to modern energy services.
