UNDP Water Consultant Job in Kenya 2013
National Individual Consultant
Water Consultant – Implementation and Development of Inclusive Business Models to Improve Access to Safe Water and Increase Agricultural Productivity by Utilizing Japanese Water Purification Technologies in Kenya
Kenya is classified as a water scarce country.
The amount of water source per head is 647m3 per year in Kenya, which is far less than water poverty criterion of 1,000m3 per year (FAO).
This amount is expected to decrease to 235 m3 per year by 2025, mainly due to population growth.
The Government of Kenya, through the Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MWI), which is the key institution responsible for the water sector in Kenya, has obligations to meet in various international treaties relating to rivers, river basins, water courses and lakes.
Under the MDGs, Kenya is committed to a 50% reduction of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation by 2015.
Provision of water is also a prerequisite for the attainment of targets under the other MDGs.
MWI, therefore, has a big challenge in ensuring the necessary availability and access to water services to facilitate the attainment of the MDGs.
UNDP seeks to recruit a National Individual Consultant to develop inclusive business models to improve access to safe water and improve agricultural yields in Kenya, by utilizing Japanese water purification technologies.
Interested and qualified candidates should submit their application which should include the following:
