This CFSP provides a systematic framework on which to anchor the Programs of the County Government of Garissa during the period FY 2017/18. The drafters of the CFSP take cognizance that Kenya’s economy grew by 6.2 percent in the second quarter of 2016 from 5.9 percent in first quarter supported by strong expansion in agriculture; forestry and fishing; mining and quarrying; transport and storage; electricity and water supply; wholesale and retail trade; accommodation and restaurant and information and communication. Garissa County has noted considerable growth an indication that it remains strong and is projected to pick up in 2017 and the medium term. The economic growth outlook of the county is underpinned by continued good performance across all sectors of the economy; investment in security and continued infrastructure development and enhanced public participation. Therefore, in this CFSP, we aim to address the outstanding challenges that continue to present a dark cloud above the growth and development of Garissa County; an Oasis in the desert.
