Innovate 4 Water

The proposed Innovate 4 Water Kisumu is a ‘homegrown’ initiative that seeks to build on lessons learned from the I4W Nairobi forum to provide a sustainable approach to addressing the need for innovation in the water and sanitation sector not only in Kenya but the region as well through private sector engagement. Technology and innovation have been prescribed as the strategy to deliver this aspiration as an enabler to efficient water use, which thereby reduces the strain on the utility companies in the country. Use of sustainable technologies and solutions is also recommended as a very good approach into which communities, urban centres, and governments can deal with the issues related to sanitation this include, collection, transportation. There is also a need to develop and integrate innovative technologies which can address non-revenue water in small towns and peri-urban centres. These include technical and commercial and water quality and adaptive management through real-time data collection and management.
