The Republic of Kenya has received a loan from the French Development Agency to fund a plan to improve access to safe drinking water and sanitation in the city of Kisumu.
Its objective is to ensure a better supply of water in this area (7.3 million people) and to improve wastewater management. At the end of the project, residents will receive almost 66,000 m3 of additional water per day. A large proportion of the population in the poorest neighbourhoods will also benefit from this project, particularly in terms of access to drinking water through an improved supply at a reduced cost.
Egis' role is to support LVSWSB (Lake Victoria South Water Services Board) who work under the Ministry of Water and Irrigation and have responsiblity for
the entire project.
