Participants at the Stakeholder Dialogue and Workshop on Water Harvesting in Kenya’s Arid and Semi-Arid Lands, Kenyatta University

In January, a group of us from GKI were in Kenya with Dr. Kennedy Mwetu and the LINK Kenya team. The trip was exciting for a number of reasons, including having the chance to visit farmers in Kitui County, and sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Kenyatta University.

One of the most important parts of the trip, though, was a dialogue and workshop on rainwater harvesting hosted by GKI and Kenyatta University on January 16. Thirty-one stakeholders from Kenya’s government, non-profit, and university communities came together to identify ways to boost farmer incomes through rainwater harvesting. We have a long way to go, but we at GKI believe that the partnerships forged at this event have the capacity to be catalytic, and change the direction of water scarcity interventions in Kenya.
