WISE Use in Kenya

February 5, 2024

The Kajiado County government will be using the WISE Scales in WASH evaluation efforts. As Dr. Leina Mpoke, Kajiado County Minister for Water, Environment, & Natural Resources put it: “WISE data can greatly assist utility managers and decision-makers to quickly understand where and when problems related to water supply or water quality are occurring. This can facilitate timely repairs, lower costs, and reduce non-revenue water as leakages can be more readily identified.”
