Catchment and Water Resources Protection, Kibwezi (Water Resources Investments)

Water Services Trust Fund (WSTF) is a Kenyan State Corporation that was established under the Water Act, 2002, and mandated to finance water and sanitation services for the poor and underserved communities in rural and urban areas.

In the Water Act, 2016, it was renamed Water Sector Trust Fund and its mandate expanded to include provision of conditional and unconditional grants to the Counties, and to assist in financing the development of and management of water services in the marginalised and underserved areas, including:

  1. Community level initiatives for the sustainable management of water resources
  2. Development of water services in rural areas considered not to be commercially viable for provision of water services by licensees
  3. Development of water services in the under-served poor urban areas.

Water Sector Trust Fund invested more than KES 7 billion directly to projects by June 2016 for water resources, water supply and sanitation services to the underserved areas in Kenya. It has reached more than 5 million people with water and sanitation supply, covering both urban and rural areas. It has an outreach of over 3 million people supplied with water and sanitation covering both urban and rural areas. It improved the capacity of 100 water utilities (Water Service Providers — WSPs) to service the communities and to provide for sustainability. WSTF support has resulted in many positive aspects to communities served and implementing agents (Maji Insight 2015-2016 Report, page 15).
