National Development Plan of Kenya

Following the successful implementation of the Economic Recovery Strategy for Wealth and Employment Creation 2003–07, Kenya Vision 2030 was launched by the Grand Coalition Government in July 2008. It was the first national long-term development vision and its aim was to transform Kenya into a newly industrialising, middle-income country providing a high quality of life to all its citizens by 2030 in a clean and secure environment.

The three key pillars of this vision are:

  • a sustained average economic growth rate of 10% p.a.
  • just, cohesive and equitable social development in a clean and secure environment
  • an issue-based, people-centred, results-oriented and accountable democracy.

Vision 2030 is being implemented in successive five-year medium-term plans, the first covering the period 2008–2012. The Ministry of Planning and National Development and Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat have reviewed this first medium-term plan, paying particular attention to the feedback from stakeholders, as required by the 2010 constitution, and this has informed preparation of the 2012–17 plan.
