KPDA was established in Nairobi in 2006 as the representative body of the residential, commercial and industrial property development sector in Kenya. It is an emerging Business Member Organisation which works in proactive partnership with policy-makers, financiers and citizens to ensure that the property development industry grows rapidly but in an organized, efficient, economical and ethical manner.
Kenya Property Development Association was originally incorporated in 2006 as an independent, membership association, lobbying, research and education organization under the name Kenya Private Developers Association. Later, the name was changed to Kenya Property Developers Association and the Articles of Associations and By-laws were amended accordingly. The reason behind the change in name was to expand the Association’s mandate to serve the needs of both public and private property developers in Kenya, as well as other relevant players in the industry.
KPDA aims to achieve its vision through the following activities:
Promotion of Private Sector: Forge partnerships with industry players to develop innovative development and financing mechanisms to accelerate the growth of the industry;
Advocacy: Engage government and other stakeholders in policy dialogue to stimulate the property sector. Harmonize development activities with Kenya’s growth agenda, global standards and citizen concerns, by engaging relevant stakeholders;
Education: Provide networking forums to launch industry related advocacy initiatives, share expertise, information and experiences and build business networks;
Research: Conduct research that will inform the decisions we make and adequately equip members with valuable and up-to-date information about the industry;
Ethical Standards: Promoting our core values and ensuring that the association is defined by promotion and protection of set laws and regulations.
