We are blessed with many natural resources being at the foot of the mountain. We are a rich agrarian county because of this. We grow globally acclaimed coffee, the best aromatic rice in the region and other cash crops including tea, macadamia and horticulture. We have developed a pioneer sub-national policy paper titled The Mountain Cities
2032 as our guiding framework to transform and dignify the lives of the great people of Kirinyaga. Our vision is to make Kirinyaga the Wellness capital of the World by 2032. In 2017/2018 with a development budget of ksh1.2 billion, this report shows what we have been able to achieve towards our vision of transforming the lives of the kirinyaga residents.
The Mountain Cities Blueprint 2032
The Mountain Cities Blueprint 2032 is an integrated public policy framework that seeks to establish Kirinyaga County as “The Health & Wellness Capital of the World”. This outcome will be achieved through this Sessional Paper No. 1 2018 as a policy framework of an integrated blueprint given the need to model devolution in Africa. The Blueprint is made up of 3 pillars: enhanced agricultural production; industrial development as a part of trade and private sector development; and socio-economic development through integrated urban planning. The Framework is anchored on the foundation of; public-sector reform, economic empowerment and social transformation. Our goal is to establish Kirinyaga County as an adaptive and responsive government that will be the manifestation of emerging leadership in Africa.
