The purpose of this research was to establish enterprise risk management (ERM) practices and its contribution to the success of CDF projects in Bungoma County Kenya. The study targeted 420 CDF projects where a sample size of 204 was used. The researcher used questionnaires, interview schedule and focus group discussions to collect data.

To have successful completion of CDF projects therefore the researcher recommends full adaption and implementation of ERM practices through training of the project stakeholders, Also continuous risk analysis to identify, address, and handle risks before they become threats to success, and, this preliminary risk analysis framework could enable the realization of a continuous risk analysis for CDF projects.
