The Kenya Vision 2030 underpins the importance of ensuring growth in Kenya and emphasizes the value of land reforms, housing and urbanization as a foundation for national transformation and development. The development blueprint recognizes that housing and urbanization are critical to socio-economic, political and cultural development in Kenya. The Vision 2030 is anchored on three pillars: economic; social and political. The economic pillar aims to attain an average economic growth rate 10% per annum and maintain the same till 2030. The social pillar aims to create a just, cohesive and equitable social development in a clean and secure environment. The political pillar seeks to realise an issue-based, people-centred, result-oriented and accountable democratic system.
The social pillar has identified housing and urbanization as a key sector and aims for an adequately and decently-housed nation in a sustainable environment. This will be attained through initiation of a nationwide urban planning and development strategies, better development of and access to affordable and adequate housing, enhanced access to adequate finance for developers and buyers, and pursuit of targeted key reforms to unlock the supply potential of the housing sector.
