Activity Description

The Kenya Sanitation Enabling Environment Project (KSEEP) is a two-year project working to strengthen the enabling environment for household sanitation and hygiene in Kenya to end open defecation by 2025. To achieve this, the project will harness high-level political advocacy, strengthen government monitoring systems, roll out large-scale behavior change programs, and scale up innovative solutions for urban sanitation in informal settlements.

Activity Objectives

  • Launch and operationalize the Kenya Sanitation Alliance, which brings together relevant national ministries and development partners to strengthen the local governments to mobilize domestic resources and track and monitor the progress of eliminating open defecation through coordinated actions in 15 high-burden counties.
  • Establish and operationalize a national sanitation and hygiene real-time monitoring system in all 47 counties to strengthen accountability and evidence-based decision making.
  • Accelerate the pace toward ending open defecation in the five highest-burden counties.
  • Expand access to household sanitation in informal settlements in Kenya by promoting container-based solutions for 166,600 people living in informal settlements in Nairobi.
