How can corporate funding incentivise daily delivery of drinking water services in rural Africa?
Rural water infrastructure fails regularly and leaves communities, schools, and healthcare facilities without safe water for weeks and often months. Kenya’s 47 county governments are now legally responsible to deliver safe water services to all their residents. A Water Services Maintenance Trust Fund provides a new approach to pool and manage local financial resources from government, users, and results-based funders.
Join us to learn more about how corporate funding can incentivize improved water service delivery.
