The overarching development objective of the KWSCR program is to improve water security and build climate resilience in Kenya.
This component supports development in Kwale County, where the Mwache Dam is located, through investments in water supply and sanitation in rural communities and small towns
The dam site is located across the Mwache River at the Fulugani village (Kwale County), about 22 km west of the city of Mombasa in the coastal region of Kenya and near the coastline
The Kenya Water Security and Climate Resilience Program (KWSCRP) is funded by the World Bank International Development Association (IDA) through the Ministry of Water, Sanitation & Irrigation (MWS&I), to improve water security, strengthen water and climate risk investment planning, preparation, and implementation. The project is aimed at building water security and climate resilience for economic growth and improved social well-being.
The project development objectives of KWSCRP-1 are to:
(i) increase availability and productivity of irrigation water for project beneficiaries; and
(ii) enhance the institutional framework and strengthen capacity for water security and climate resilience for the country.
