The Mandera County Annual Development Plan (CADP) for the 2016/17 Financial Year provides a roadmap that will guide development in the County over the next one year. The plan will be linked to the county budgetary process to ensure proper prioritization of strategies and priorities geared towards achievement of the County‘s vision. It is highly guided by the county‘s medium term development blue print, the Mandera County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP) 2013-17, the Kenya Vision 2030 and other international policies and commitments such as the Sustainable Millennium Development Goals. The CADP 2016/17 is divided into five chapters. Chapter 1 provides the county‘s background information in terms of position and size; demographic features; administrative and political units; the legal basis for the preparation of the Annual Development Plan (ADP); Implementation of the CIDP 2013-17; and the scope. Chapter 2 provides the county development analysis through reviewing the performance of the previous ADP 2014/15 and also discusses the major cross-cutting development challenges affecting development in the county. It also discusses the cross-cutting issues which need to be addressed by the County Government while doing its development plans Chapter 3 discusses in depth the specific departmental development priorities that will be pursued by each department, constraints faced and strategies that will be put in place to address the constraints/challenges Chapter 4 provides highlight of all planned projects and programmes to be implemented by each department during the financial year 2016/17.
