Municipal Strategic Planning Project in Kisumu, Kenya
 
 
A delegation of Israeli experts arrived in Kenya to conduct a preliminary plan for integration of the lakefront in the city of Kisumu within the framework of cooperation existing between MASHAV, UN-HABITAT, Kisumu County and the Weitz Center for Development Studies.
 
 
Based on the Israeli experience in redeveloping seafronts in several coastal cities in Israel, and on the existing successful cooperation between the parties, Kisumu’s Municipal Council expressed their interest in implementing a one-year pilot program focusing on the city’s lakefront, based on the Municipal Strategic Planning Units (MSPU) model, which aims at promoting strategic projects operating as an entry point for diverse development programs. - MASHAV
