Welcome

National Irrigation Board (NIB) was established and incorporated in 1966 as a state corporation through the Irrigation Act, Cap 347 of the Laws of Kenya. The objective of this Act is “to provide for the development, control and improvement of irrigation schemes, for purposes incidental thereto and connected therewith.”
Currently, the Board manages seven (7) national irrigation schemes and stations with four operational research stations. The Board also has two rice mills in Eastern and Western regions: Mwea Rice Mills (MRM) and Western Kenya Rice Mills (WKRM).


In addition, the Board under the Expanded National Irrigation Programme is undertaking new developments as well as rehabilitation of irrigation projects amounting to about 169 projects spread all over the country todate.
NIB is also spearheading the implementation of Galana/Kulalu Food Security Project in Tana River and Kilifi Counties. This is a National Economic Program aimed at putting one million acres of land under irrigated agriculture within five (5) year hence increasing food security in the country. Read more
