A policy proposal for integrating WASH and water resources management in the Kajiado Water Policy 2018
Kajiado County (Kenya) is in the process of reviewing its Water Policy, which still exists in draft form. The draft policy has WASH and water resources and ecosystem management integration gaps, like the inadequate coordination and consultation between the ministries of Health and Water at County level, that will need to be addressed to ensure compliance with SDG 6. As well as the realisation that hygiene and sanitation practices affect quality of water sources and availability of water helps realisation of good hygiene and sanitation practices.
