Welcome to KDRDIP

Empowering Refugee-Hosting Communities in Kenya

Kenya Development Response to Displacement Impacts Project (KDRDIP) is a National Government initiative, supported by the World Bank to improve lives of the refugee-hosting communities in the north of the country. It is a Community Driven Development (CDD) where communities identify, plan, implement, monitor and sustain their own development projects. The projects identified by the communities are integrated into the Community Development Plans (CDPs) before they receive funding. The National Project Implementation Unit (NPIU) processes funding for the approved projects and disburses it directly to beneficiary communities through the County Integrated Project Implementation Units (CIPIUs). Communities have established Village Level Committees (VLCs) to manage the implementation of the community projects. The key committees at the village level include Community Project Management Committees (CPMCs), Social Audit Committees (SACs) and Grievance Redress Committees (GRCs). The committees are trained on their roles and responsibilities in project management. KDRDIP works with various stakeholders in efforts to transform lives of the refugee-hosting communities in Turkana, Wajir and Garissa Counties.
