You’ll work in our Nairobi office as part of our Sustainable Urban Economic Development (SUED) team.
SUED is a donor-funded, 6-year programme whose core objective is to provide sustainable urban economic development in Small and Medium Towns (SMTs) in Kenya. The programme improved urban economic planning at county level, improved sub-national business environment reforms, and established an Urban Investment Advisory Facility (UIAF) to support public-private investment in Infrastructure and high potential value chains across Kenya.
You will lead the urban planning and development initiatives in the selected SMTs in Kenya.
You will be responsible for all relationships development, demand development, and you’ll serve as the technical advisor. This entails providing leadership in the preparation of the selected SMTs’ development plans, real estate and housing development. You’ll provide technical input into the policy and institutional design for providing efficient urban services and managing public utilities.
Additionally, you’ll identify and develop a bankable pipeline of urban development infrastructure enablers in the SMTs including renewable energy, water supply, housing, waste management. You’ll identify, design, appraise, supervise, and monitor and evaluate urban infrastructure services and disaster risk management initiatives, and you’ll have the opportunity to design, develop and implement county-wide urban finance frameworks.
