Pipes, Policy and Public Money: Integrity in Water Sector Public Financial Management in Kenyan Counties

The Kenyan government has made a commitment to achieve universal access to water and sanitation services by the year 2030, yet service coverage for water and sanitation is still lowand has only marginally increased in the last couple of years. To improve and fulfill the human rights to water and sanitation enshrined in the Kenyan constitution, urgent action is required to ensure available financing is used efficiently and effectively, and to build the necessary environment to increase financing.

Pipes, Policy, and Public Money is a report on new research by the Kenya Water and Sanitation Civil Society Network (KEWASNET) and the Water Integrity Network (WIN) that shows how integrity in public financial management can be strengthened to increase WASH sector efficiency and accountability towards citizens. Developed in partnership with the Kenya Ministry of Water and Sanitation and the Council of Governors, the report considers in detail to what extent the sector’s rules, institutions, and processes for decision-making on the allocation and management of resources are transparent, accountable, participatory, followed, and contain safeguards to prevent and sanction corruption.
