Trainer’s Manual for Community Managed Water Supplies

In 2012, the UNICEF Kenya Country Office and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation Department published an in-depth Trainer’s Manual for Community Managed Water Supplies. Attached you will find the training manual.

Community Managed Water Supplies


“Community managed water supply systems play a significant role in providing water services to the Kenyan public. However many community managed water supplies continue to under-perform and require support in terms of infrastructure improvement, strengthening of management and financial systems, operation and maintenance, and better inclusion into the regulatory framework. It is recognized that many organizations, including the Ministry of Water and Irrigation, have and continue to respond to the need to improve the water services offered by the community managed supplies. This Trainer’s Manual aims to support the process of building sustainable community managed water supplies.”
