Water Directorate established in the Ministry in 2004 as focal point for sector coordination, harmonization, sector-wide monitoring and evaluation of GPRS outcomes and MDG targets, as well as coordination of foreign assistance
Water and Sanitation Sector Group (WSSG) established to provide platform for coordinating and harmonizing DP programmes. (later on membership widened to include other sector players including NGOs and philanthropic organisations)
Notable achievement was formulation of the National Water Policy (NWP) led by WD and received Cabinet approval policy in 2007 providing sector with clear policy direction in water resources management and water supply (rural and urban)
Though significant growth and development has been achieved, sector still hampered by lack of clear over-arching vision of strategy and coordination framework covering the different parts of the sector
Added to this is difficulty in harmonising and alignment of donor support to government programmes and procedures
Led to poor prioritisation and planning of investments; increased transaction costs; limited ability of sector to absorb increased funding and thereby militating against achieving desired outcomes.
