Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development Urban and regional Planners/Spatial Planners Jobs in Kenya The Government of Kenya has received financing from the World Bank towards the cost of Kenya Urban Support Program(KUSP) and it intends to apply part of the proceeds toward payments for Internship opportunities for various professional positions in 45 counties and their 59 municipalities under the National Hygiene Program (NHP), dubbed “Kazi Mtaani”. The program is an extended public works project (EPWP) aimed at utilizing labour intensive approaches to create sustainable public good in the urban development sector.
The initiative aims to target employment of youth across the country and more specifically, to engage these youths in activities that will mainly improve the environment within informal settlements of urban areas while cushioning those youths from economic strain. Especially, economic strain brought about by the adoption of containment policies to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus across the country.
There is an opportunity to utilize EPWPs to achieve multiple aims of providing employment through daily wages for low income workers living in informal settlements while improving urban infrastructure and service delivery within informal settlements. The Kazi Mtaani programme will therefore focus on putting people back to work in the short-term as a measure to alleviate the economic impact of the pandemic within informal settlements. The NHP will be implemented across 47 counties and their 59 KUSP funded municipalities in the country. The program thus anticipates collaboration between the National and County Governments in order to achieve the goals of the program.
