Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Finance (WASH-FIN) Kenya Fact Sheet.pdf

Kenya made considerable progress meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) for water; by 2015 82% of the urban and 57% of the rural population had access to an improved water supply. Limited progress was made in sanitation however, with access at 31% in urban and 30% in rural areas. The UN Sustainable Development Goal 6 sets ambitious targets for universal access to water and sanitation by 2030 requiring an unprecedented mobilization of funds. In Kenya, the estimated total cost for water supply is Ksh1.7 trillion (USD17 billion), while the available government budget is Ksh592.4 billion (USD5.6 billion), leaving a shortfall of Ksh1.2 trillion (USD11.4 billion) WASH-FIN Kenya will work in collaboration with government, development partners, private financial institutions and local stakeholders to reduce the financing gaps. Further, WASH-FIN will work to improve governance structures that enable access to reliable sources of capital for sustainable, resilient water and sanitation infrastructure.
