The National Council for Population and Development (NCPD) conducted a training on PADIS for planning officers drawn from Kwale, Kilifi, Mombasa, Lamu, Taita Taveta, and Tana River counties. PADIS is the acronym for Population Administration and Decision Information System. This is a population projection software developed by China Population and Development Research Centre. The aim of the training, which took place on 15th and 16th May 2018 in Mombasa, was to empower the planning officers with population projection knowledge and skills that they can use to project the future population size and composition of their respective counties.  With this information, the planning officers will be able to provide guidance for the development of various development plans at the county level. A total of 15 planning officers participated in the training.
