Monitoring WASH and WRM election promises in Kenya

October 10, 2019


During Election campaign periods in Kenya, aspiring leaders share manifestos to the electorate with the promises of what they intend to deliver once they are elected into different positions.

One of the major challenges has been the lack of a framework to monitor and track the progress of these promises. For this reason, Watershed partners in Kenya led by KEWASNET and Akvo came together and developed a Water Resources Management (WRM) – Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Monitoring tool.

This was done using Akvo’s RSR (Really Simple Reporting) result framework, to monitor promises made by governors in the focus counties (Laikipia and Kajiado), Nairobi, and the president of Kenya during last year’s elections. This paper presents the status reports.
