Kericho, Kisii, Nyamira and Litein: Water and Sanitation Sector Development Program Lake Victoria South: Consulting Services for Accompanying Measures
SaWa is implementing the Accompanying Measures for the Water and Sanitation Sector Development Programme, financed by KfW.
The main objective of the AM Component is to support the Water Service Providers (WSPs) KEWASCO and GWASCO to improve their performance and to enable sustainable operation of the newly constructed infrastructure. This will improve the water supply and wastewater services for the residents of the serviced areas in Kericho, Kisii, Nyamira and Litein.
The COVID-19 global pandemic has unfortunately resulted in a limited mobilisation of experts for the planned training activities. Therefore, only some of the planned activities have been carried out. All activities that had been planned for 2020 and were not carried out have been pushed to subsequent quarters and will be reviewed/updated as the situation develops. It is expected that trainings on strategic and business planning, asset management, corporate governance, and financial management will be started during the second quarter of 2021.
Currently our local partner is working with the WSPs on a Non-Revenue-Water reduction strategy in designated pilot zones. Despite any challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, SaWa remains confident that the up-coming trainings will have a positive impact on the WSPs.
