Sector and project financing in Kenya: financing strategies for service delivery
conference contributionposted on 2018-11-08, 15:18 authored by Eden Mati, Kariuki Mugo
Kenya requires innovative funding strategies, mechanisms and tools to ensure that it will reach national and international development goals regarding water and sanitation. The WASH sector, and Kenya as a whole, must explore innovative funding tools and mechanisms that can adequately leverage finance from a number of different sources, including domestically-generated revenues, as well as new mechanisms such as climate-related funding. To date, the lack of a comprehensive national investment plan has resulted in disjointed investment interventions and poor targeting that has not addressed sector needs across the country. This paper examines potential public financing strategies for the sector in Kenya and provides recommendations for their monitoring and evaluation to ensure sustained change and steady financial development.
