Kenya Country Impact Study – Volume 2
This document is an internal Kenya country impact study of initiatives supported by UN-HABITAT’s Water and Sanitation Trust Fund (WSTF) undertaken by a team of international consultants. The objective of the WSTF, established in 2003, was to bring in new investment and ideas, expand service coverage for poor urban dwellers and help build momentum for achieving the MDGs.
Its Strategic Plan for the 2008 – 2012 envisions three key outcomes:
• Increased institutional capacity in partner countries for pro-poor water and sanitation initiatives and policies with focus on gender equity, renewable energy and efficiency and environmental sustainability
• Increased flow of investment into water and sanitation sector catalysed by WSTF interventions
• Improved MDG monitoring mechanisms in place in partner countries, with improved benchmarking of water and sanitation service providers
