The Government of Kenya has prioritized the Big Four Agenda for implementation in the next five years. The Big Four presents four key areas of focus that will transform the lives and wellbeing of the citizens of Kenya.

The Lake Basin Development Authority is cognizant of the importance of this development agenda and has defined the programmes and projects that are aligned to the Big Four agenda as follows:

Under this pillar the Government of Kenya will support value addition and raise the manufacturing sector’s share to GDP to 15% by 2022. This will accelerate economic growth, create jobs and reduce poverty. The Lake Basin Development Authority has prioritized the following projects to achieve the objectives of this pillar:
a) Upscaling of the Kibos Rice Mill – LBDC
b) Fruits Processing Plant
c) Vegetables Processing Plant
d) Modern Honey Processing Plant
e) Animal Feed Processing Plant
f) Cotton Ginnery and Oil Press Factory
g) Magwagwa Multipurpose Dam Project
h) Nandi Multipurpose Dam Project

Under this pillar the Government will focus on initiatives that guarantee food security and nutrition to all Kenyans by 2022 through expansion of food production and supply, reduction of food prices to ensure affordability and support value addition in the food processing value chain. Towards this end, the Lake Basin Development Authority has prioritized the following projects:

a)    Regional Demonstration and Technology Development Centres
b)    Lichota, Muhoroni and Alupe Solar Irrigation Project
c)    Nyakach-Kano Irrigation Development Project
