MARALAL, Kenya [ACTED News] - Generating information on water point resources provides a critical basis for water point rehabilitation and future water supply interventions in the arid and semi-arid areas of Northern Kenya. Building on previous experience in water mapping in Samburu County and East Pokot District, ACTED, through District Water Officers, has mapped the location and current state of 304 water resources including dams, springs, boreholes, roof catchments for institutions, communal rock catchments, wells and communal stand pipes (water kiosks). ACTED is currently uploading the information onto an online interactive map which will then be shared to relevant stakeholders to inform better coordinated water resource management, planning, and programme implementation in these areas. This project is supported bu the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation.
