Discover the Coast Development Authority (CDA), a State Corporation established by an Act of Parliament No. 20 of 1990 (Cap 449), revised in 1992. CDA’s mandate is to plan and coordinate the implementation of development projects across the entire Coast Region, including Kilifi, Kwale, Lamu, Mombasa, Taita-Taveta, and Tana River Counties, as well as southern Garissa and the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). With an area of jurisdiction covering over 100,000 km2, CDA plays a crucial role in supporting the socio-economic growth of the region’s diverse population of over 3.5 million people. Despite covering a large area, only 31% of the land is arable, with the majority being Arid and Semi-Arid Land (ASAL) that mainly supports livestock production and wildlife.
