The Kenya Urban Support Programme (KUSP) is a USD300 million project whose objective is to establish and strengthen urban institutions to deliver improved infrastructure and services in participating counties in Kenya. The Operation will provide direct support to all counties other than the city counties of Nairobi and Mombasa, and to 59 potentially eligible urban areas within those counties.
