CONSULTANCY ON TURKANA COUNTY RESOURCE MAPPING STUDY (INT3701)

Oxfam Great Britain - 2 August 2017 - 14:04
Region: HECA, Division: International, Job Type: ConsultancyBackground

 

Turkana County government is one of the 47 county governments formed under the County Governments’ Act 2012. At 77,000 sq.km, the county is the second largest in Kenya, covering over 13% of Kenya’s surface. Beneath this surface lies huge oil deposits, a few of which are currently under exploration and will realize extraction at an industrial scale in the years to come, thus benefiting its population of over 1 million Kenyans, and the country at large. The County executive, and particularly the County Treasury, is keen on tapping more of these resources that will then translate into newer and expanded revenue streams which will effectively finance the much needed essential services for citizens living in Turkana.
