This Feasibility Study Report presents an analytical case in defining the technical and institutional options for the establishment of the Kenya Irrigation and Drainage Association (KIDA) and its financial implications. The need for formation of KIDA has been amplified in the literature, by Key Informant Interviews (KII) and a stakeholders’ workshop held on
February 8, 2007 at National Agricultural Research Laboratories, Kabete. It was reaffirmed on April 26, 2007 in a workshop held at KARI Headquarters. KIDA is expected to enhance irrigated agriculture by improving information sharing and providing a platform for networking.
