Strategic interventions

C-MAP aims to achieve 90% access to safe and clean water within its target communities. In order to facilitate communities to access potable Water and enhance hygiene and sanitation, the following strategic interventions will be sought;

  • Mapping out with the communities water and sanitation needs and coming up with appropriate technologies
  •  Develop innovative community based methods and technologies for water harvesting in the rural areas, specifically special attention should be paid on the roof catchment.
  • Promote the use of the VIP latrines and septic tanks in the rural areas to include schools adhering to the ration of 35:1 for boys and 25:1 for girls for world standards.
  • Educate on water usage and replacement wasteful technologies with more efficient technologies e.g. low volume cistern toilets. Enable communities take up water kiosks technology to alleviate the water problem.
  • Increase and build capacity on waste management. Create awareness and education on waste management. The sewerage coverage should be increased especially in the urban centers if the CBO aspires to match the standards associated with better sanitation community.
  • Specially focus on the gender. Water scarcity affects the women and girls more because of the tradition assignment of the responsibility to ensure adequate water in the households.

3. Environmental Conservation and Climate Change Mitigation Technologies

Strategic Objective;

The broad objective in this section is to mainstream cross-cutting issues of HIV/AIDS, environmental conservation, gender and social-religious into our development programs

Specific objectives:

  • To mainstream issues of the youth, gender, disabled persons and minorities affairs and HIV/AIDS in socio-economic programs in the CBO’s structures, organs, programs and projects
  • To be part of the process of preparation and implementation of social affairs responsive to County activities at different levels

 Key thematic areas of focus:
