Determinants Of Successful Implementation Of Community Driven Development Projects In Kilifi County, Kenya.
This study sought to find out the factors which determine the successful implementation of Community Driven Development (CDD) projects in Kilifi County.This study is important because theCDD approach is a relatively new development approach being adopted by several development partners including the European Union and the World Bank. There is thus need to assess the success factors of this approach in the Kenyan Coast region to give insight to development agencies that may wish to adopt the development approach. This study was carried out in Kilifi County. The target population was CBOs from Kilifi County which had received funding from KCDP/HMP and were at different levels of projects implementation. In data collection, the study employed document analysis, indepth interviews and questionnaires. The study results showed that timely availability of financial resources is considered as a key determinant of successful implementation of CDD projects. Most of the respondents felt that the amount of grant disbursed was sufficient resulting to some aspects of the desired project outcome being left out. The study also showed that there was great involvement of the projects implementation by the CBO members and most members had a positive view in the time they spent in project work. Most members viewed training as a key determinant in ensuring project success. Project that need technical support experienced delays in completion because of delay in getting the support. From the results obtained from the study, it is recommended that KCDP/HMP increases the grant sizes, looks for ways on motivating the group community members who spend much of their time in project implementation and improve the availability of technical support to the CBOs.
