Sustainable Water and Sanitation in Africa Project – Kenya

Sustainable Water and Sanitation in Africa (SUWASA) is a regional initiative of the US Agency for International Development (USAID), implemented by Tetra Tech, with a mission of fostering the transformation of water and sanitation delivery services in Africa to achieve long-term financial sustainability through the application of market-based principles. SUWASA is designed to spread effective models of reform at the water utility and sector levels, and to facilitate innovative financing approaches for African water providers.

Activity

National Training, Funzo Kenya Project

Funzo Kenya supports the Government of Kenya’s efforts to make dramatic changes to its health worker education and training systems. “Funzo” means training in Kiswahili. The activity works across the public and private sectors to strengthen pre-service education of health workers, increase the number of health workers graduating from Kenya’s medical training institutions, improve access to training for existing health workers, and link professional licensing to ongoing professional development.

Activity

Resilience and Economic Growth in the Arid Lands-Accelerated Growth

Resilience and Economic Growth in Arid Lands – Accelerated Growth is a five-year activity that increases economic growth in rural communities in Kenya by building a more inclusive and competitive livestock value chain. It encourages growth by improving market access and increasing the availability and affordability of inputs and services. It strengthens the links between pastoralists and the buyers of livestock and livestock products. It helps herders increase livestock productivity through improved breeds, and expands the adoption of existing and new livestock services.

Activity

Kenya Integrated Water Sanitation and Hygiene Program

The Kenya Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (KIWASH) Project is a $51 million five-year activity (October 2015 to September 2020) funded by USAID/Kenya and East Africa (USAID/KEA) and implemented by a consortium led by DAI. The goal of KIWASH is to improve lives and health through development and management of sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services in Kenya.

Activity

Infrastructure Needs Program II

Not only is infrastructure development in the West Bank being performed in a constantly evolving, highly politicized environment, but since assuming limited self-rule over portions of the West Bank and Gaza in 1993, the Palestinian Authority (PA) has struggled to allocate sufficient resources to fully support the maintenance of existing infrastructure. Transportation, water and other infrastructure in the West Bank and Gaza have suffered badly from neglect, lack of investment and the direct impacts of conflict.

Activity

Local Construction Program

The success of a future Palestinian state depends upon an infrastructure system capable of providing basic services to a growing population. Prior to USAID intervention, years of underinvestment, poor maintenance, and a lack of repairs led to a serious deterioration of water, sewage, and roads networks; insufficient classrooms and recreational spaces for Palestinian youth; and insufficient health services. The donor community and USAID in particular have implemented an array of programs in the West Bank and Gaza (WBG) in order to address the critical infrastructure shortages.

Activity

Community Based Initiatives for Water Demand Management

In response to the influx of Syrian refugees,USAID built on previous projects' previous success through a complex crisis fund-supported cost extension from May 2013 to October 2015. To this effect, CBIWDM II came to life to reduce the social and economic impact of water limitations in host communities. This has been achieved by reducing water losses, improving efficiency, addressing the immediate impact of the Syrian crisis on water resources, and increasing community involvement in managing demand.

Activity

Institutional Strengthening and Support Program

Jordan is one of the most water-scarce countries in the world. Rapid population growth coupled with economic development needs places huge strain on already limited water supplies. The added burden of a large refugee influx has caused water demand to rise more than 20% in just three years. While Jordan is a regional leader in areas of water management including reuse, water quality and level of service, the water sector remains in crisis. Water sector institutions struggle to meet ever-growing demand for sufficient and safe water, and groundwater extraction exceeds sustainable supply.
