KDRDIP Community Investment Funding Trends

Introduction

Component 1 of the Kenya Development Response to Displacement Impacts Project (KDRDIP) supported improvements in access to quality basic services for the refugee-host communities in Kenya. The key services included education (primary and secondary), health services, water supply, sanitation and hygiene, roads and markets. This is achieved through the provision of investment funds that, together with community contributions, expand and improve service delivery and build infrastructure for local development. The investments are identified, prioritized, implemented, and monitored by beneficiary communities assisted by local government.

The Component was allocated a total of USD 48,681,000 (Ksh. 4,868,100,000). Out of this amount, USD 45,976,500 (94.44%) was used to implement sub-projects in the following sectors: water and sanitation; education; health; markets; and roads while USD 2,704,500 (5.56%) was used for capacity building. The figure below shows the financing trend for Component 1 between FY 2019/2020 and FY 2022/2023.

Analysis on the sub-projects covered under this component in FY 2020/2021 showed that water, education and health were key development needs identified by beneficiary communities in the five sub-counties in which the Project operated. Water and sanitation topped as the priority need at 42 per cent, followed by education (30 per cent) and health (15 per cent). This is demonstrated in the implementation of the sub-projects between FY2020/2021 and FY2022/2023 as shown in the figures below:
