Catalysing Green Technologies for Sustainable Water Service Delivery Kenya- Feasibility study framework

Type: 
Publication
Publication date: 
Tuesday 16 May 2017
Objective: 
Sectors: 

Water services in Kenya are often inadequate, unsafe and unsustainable. The arid and semi-arid and  poor  peri-urban  areas  are  mostly  vulnerable  and  are  largely  characterized  by  low  water services  provision  and  severe  water  scarcity,  where  the demand  substantially  surpasses  its availability. Additionally, climate change is expected to significantly impact on water availability and  therefore  creating  the  needs  of  climate  proof  investments  for  improved  water  access  in underserved areas in Kenya.
