Water services available for the poor in Kenya are often inadequate, unsafe and unsustainable. Climate change is expected to further impact water availability and infrastructure​. There is a need to determine the technical and financial feasibility of selected green technologies for improved water resources and climate-proofed infrastructure.

In this technical assistance led by UNEP-DTU Partnership, CTCN is supporting the Water Services Trust Fund (WSTF) in Kenya, to determine the technical and financial feasibility of selected green technologies for improved water resources and climate-proofed infrastructure, with focus on two areas: ASAL in Northern Kenya and poor peri-urban areas:

  • Prioritize green water technologies adapted to targeted areas,
  • ​Draft a pre-feasibility study to determine the technical, economic and social feasibility of the three selected technologies,
  • ​​Identify potential private sector actors and Public Private Partnerships (PPP) within the water sector for the deployment of green water technologies,
  • Build capacity in the development of a concept note to trigger future funding.

It is expected, that this technical assistance will strengthen resilience of communities vulnerable to water stress.
