Watershed Trains Laikipia County Officials and Stakeholders on Digital WASH/WRM Reporting

The County Government of Laikipia, through the Water, Environment and Natural Resources Ag. Chief Officer, Mr. Evans Kamau gave a full commitment to the use of digital mechanisms to report on WASH/WRM data in the County.

Speaking at the Watershed Work Package 2 Training Workshop, organized for the Laikipia Water and Environment County officials and watershed program stakeholders, the chief officer and other stakeholders acknowledged the efforts made by the Watershed program through its implementing partners: the Laikipia Forum and MKEWP, Kenya Water for Health Organization (KWAHO), Akvo Foundation, and the Kenya Water and Sanitation Civil Society Network (KEWASNET) to ensure that the County Government upholds transparency and full accountability to the electorate.

The training workshop took place on the 15th and 16th of May, 2019, in Nanyuki. It was a follow-up training after the “Election Monitoring Workshop” in Arusha, Tanzania, earlier in the year. Mr. Alex Kabuki, the sub-county Water Officer for Laikipia, proposed that sub county water officers be trained on the Real Simple Reporting (RSR), a tool that had been introduced in the Arusha Workshop.

For two days, participants were trained on how to collect, analyse and report on WASH/WRM data using the online reporting platform: Real Simple Reporting (RSR) and Akvo Flow, a tool used to help in collection of data during surveys.

All stakeholders at the Nanyuki workshop agreed the parameters for future data collection. The outcome of the training and the draft RSR tool, created specifically for the County, was shared with the CEC for further review and input to ensure that it reflects the true priorities of the County Government.
