The County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP) is usually one of the first tasks of a newly elected government and It is the core five-year development plan that integrates the long-term spatial, sector, and urban plans with inputs from the Governor’s manifesto, national government plans, and programs, past county development performance and the views and expectations of other development actors and the public at large.
The CIDP sets the priorities and guides all county government spending until the next elections.
