Cities are important drivers of development and poverty reduction in both urban and rural areas, as they concentrate much of the national economic activity, government, commerce and transportation, and provide crucial links with rural areas, between cities, and across international borders. However, rapid and unplanned urban expansion leads to rapid sprawl, deficiencies in water and energy supply, and in the disposal of waste, chronically congested roads and public transport, pollution and environmental degradation, together with unsustainable production and consumption patterns. In order to attain sustainable urbanization, the government must put in place proper planning mechanisms; require technically competent, responsive and accountable professionals charged with the management of cities and expansion as well as appropriate use of public funds directed towards basic services where they will yield the largest benefit for citizens.

Devolution is the most significant political reform in Kenya since independence. For the nation – and for Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) – it is of singular importance. While resolving distributional grievances will be a tremendous step forward for Kenya, we must not see the sharing of resources as a panacea. Devolution is not a solution; it is an opportunity. It is not a map to our destination; it is merely a new terrain – and we still have to decide where we will go, and how we will get there.

Sudan and South Sudan are also being considered for membership in the Community.
