The Kenyan Government has received funding through the World Bank to undertake the preparation of the KCDP.

The GoK intends to use part of the proceeds of this grant to fund a Project Preparation Advisor (individual consultant) to assist with the development of an MPA component and to help the project coordinator and focal area leaders to produce a bankable project document that includes both technical and economic aspects.
