Cadwes

- Science and Education for Water Services


In 1998, the Capacity Development of Water and Environmental Services (CADWES) research team was formally established at Tampere University of Technology (TUT).

As its mission CADWES has defined "to produce usable knowledge and education, based on multi- and interdisciplinary research, on the evolution and development of sustainable use of water services and water resources in a wider institutional context: organisations, governance, management, economics, legislation, policy, rules and practices".

Public-People Cooperation: hits and misses in sustaining Nairobi’s Groundwater

The importance of groundwater sources has been increasingly growing in the city of Nairobi in the face of aa increasing demand for freshwater resources.

An increasing demand emerging from a fast-growing urban population, urbanization bringing about high per capita water consumption, and growth in industrial production have led to a strain on surface water sources that have been more relied on for the city’s water supply requirements. For instance, the frequency of water rationing has increased in order to ensure equitable allocation.

Consequently, thousands of boreholes have been sunk in the city in the recent years but with challenges in regulation of groundwater abstractions, the levels have been constantly decreasing. Similarly, the expansion of urban development and population growth continue to expose groundwater recharge areas to encroachment and degradation. These factors pose a risk for the future water availability for the city. And similarly, faced with the pressures of population growth, urbanization and industrial water demand, the challenge of managing groundwater will likely also intensify.

The water resources authority that is mandated with regulation of groundwater resources is unlikely to match the escalated demand in its limited composition of staff and resources, and neither is the county government that is charged with protection of groundwater recharge areas in the absence of local partners to help in enforcing compliance. The role of water resource users associations, as local level participants may then be prime in closing the gap, especially of enabling self-regulation, and providing critical data and information, for example, on who owns a borehole, and how much is being abstracted.  But these are similarly limited in capacity in terms of knowledge on technical and regulatory issues in groundwater management, besides the general disadvantage of the invisible changes in quantity or quality in groundwater.

Institutional frameworks for stronger collaboration between the authority, the county government, and the water resources users associations need to be factored as a seeming prerequisite for effective groundwater management for the city of Nairobi.
