The Kenya Institute of Planners (KIP) is the premiere umbrella body representing professional planners in Kenya. The Institute brings together Urban and Regional Planners, Economic Development Planners, Transportation and Infrastructure Planners, Social and Community Planners, Environmental Planners, and Urban Designers in Kenya.
KIP was formed pursuant of Section 12 (b) of the Physical Planners Registration Act (PPRA), which had anticipated the formation and approval of a professional institute for planners. Hitherto, planners were represented through the Town Planning Chapter of the Architectural Association of Kenya. KIP was subsequently registered on the 21st April 1999 under the Societies Act following a long period of consultation among planners and other stakeholders affected by the planning practice in Kenya.
