The Water Partnership (MKEWP) presented its 5-year Strategic Plan and Financial Sustainability Plan (FSP) to the national 2030 Water Resources Group Kenya (2030 WRG) during its governing council meeting held in Nairobi on April 11th, 2018.
The Partnership took the council through its five strategic objectives to address the long term water-related needs, challenges, and risks for basin development and management in the Upper Ewaso Ng’iro North Water Basin.
The Partnership was commended for its efforts to deliver a Financial Sustainability Plan that provides a road map for fundraising, financial management, and income generation.
MKEWP’s partner,Rural Focus, showcased the Water Partnership as a success story that could be replicated in the other water basins of Kenya. Rural Focus had just completed a national study benchmarking water partnerships.
The success of the MKEWP was also voiced by Board’s co-chair, Cabinet Secretary for Water and Sanitation, Mr. Simon Chelugui, and BIDCO CEO, Mr. Vimal Shah. They encouraged establishment of more partnerships that use the MKEWP model.
The WRG 2030 Kenya Board represents a unique public-private-civil society collaboration that facilitates dialogue to drive action on water resources reform in water stressed countries in developing economies. The Kenya Group is one of 12 groups supported by the World Bank internationally.
