Millennium Water Alliance in partnership with the County Government of Turkana, has deliberately trained officials from the Department of Water Services.
The training will help the team to fix uptime and improve the decision-making process.
The Program is geared towards building resilience in responding to water access crises.
The training conducted in Nairobi was attended by Chief Officer of Water Services, David Maraka, Director of Water Services, Paul Lotum, and Benedict Ekeru, Loima Sub-county Water Officer.
This is part of the bigger program by Millennium Water Alliance to create a comprehensive system that integrates early detection of water shortages, proper planning, and proactive response to avert humanitarian crises arising from limited access to water.
The team acknowledged having been exposed to data-driven decision-making, water quality analysis, corrective and curative operation, and maintenance, as well as the critical role of working water governance structures.
According to Chief Maraka, the training provided valuable insights on the provision of technical leadership to the staff working in the water sector, on matters handling water shortage as an emergency.
CCO underscored the skills gained will be shared with the technical staff, to build the resilience of the service providers in the water sector in addressing the lack of access to clean water.
