The Kenya Vision 2030 is the national long-term development policy that aims to transform the country into a newly industrializing, middle-income country providing a high quality of life to all its citizens in a clean and secure environment by 2030. The Vision is implemented at both the national and sub-national levels through a five year Medium Term Plan and County Integrated Development Plans respectively. The SDGs will be mainstreamed at these two levels. The first MTP was implemented between 2008 and 2012 and the second MTP is from 2013 to 2017 and the two plans mainstreamed the MDGs. The third is being implemented between 2018 and 2022, while the fourth MTP will be implemented from 2023 to 2028. The Medium Term Plans identify priority projects and programmes to be implemented in each five years cycle and each is expected to incorporate new and emerging issues. When Kenya embarked on the preparation of the MTPII, the Post 2015 Agenda was still under deliberation and the next goals far from being finalized. By the time the SDGs were adopted MTP II was in third year of implementation, making it a transition between MDGs and SDGs, i.e. it brought on board some of the SDGs issues while continuing with the unfinished business of the MDGs. Presently MTP III is underway taking on board the regional and international commitments that focused on mainstreaming the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
