Integrated and sustainable management of water resources
Kenya's water resources (rivers, lakes, groundwater) are unevenly distributed geographically and vary seasonally. Rainfall, the main source of renewable water, changes considerably depending on location and time. With almost 80% of the country classified as arid or semi-arid, Kenya is experiencing a high level of vulnerability and water insecurity exacerbated by climate change.
This situation severely limits access to clean water and sanitation, with significant consequences for food security and the health of the population.
Turkana is located within the boundaries of the former Rift Valley Province. In recent decades, an extensive (but not sufficient) network of boreholes, dams and earthworks has been developed along this territory, providing access to water for a significant part of the population.
The project therefore aims to set up and equip a unit of mobile technicians, available 365 days a year, who will be responsible for maintenance of more than 160 pumping installations throughout the pumping installations spread throughout the territory concerned.
