Engaging Youth on IWRM Integrated Water Resources Management : MKEWP Hosts University of Eldoret Students

The Mount Kenya Ewaso Water Partnership hosted students from the University of Eldoret, on the 6th of February 2020. During their visit, more than 100 students were given an intro to career issues in natural resources management, with a particular focus on IWRM.

The visit provided students with a chance to explore the effects of human activities on species, communities, and ecosystems. It was aimed to help develop their practical, interdisciplinary approaches to protect and restore our nature. The students were able to appreciate the role that every individual has to play in conservation and they were a particularly impressed by the new approach of EMU SACCO to help conserve and manage water at household levels.

The Mount Kenya Ewaso Water Partnership prides itself in being a game-changer in matters related to water conservation within the Ewaso Ng’iro North Catchment Area Basin. MKEWP is helping serve as a platform for discussion of IWRM issues, and more importantly a vehicle for actions that improve our water resources management. Students found their multi-stakeholder approach and membership to be exemplary!
