ITC is participating in a € 4 million project that focuses on water resource management, governance and natural resource management in the Lake Naivasha Basin. It started in January 2013 and will end in December 2016. The project is funded by the Netherlands Embassy in Kenya. The World Wide Fund for Nature, Kenya Country Office (WWF-KCO) is the leading partner. ITC closely cooperates with Dutch foundation Deltares in the implementation of the project. The specific task of ITC is to realize result/output no.2 which is “Increased knowledge and technical capacity for quantitative water resource management and monitoring in LNB”. Basically, this means that we will build up a capacity at the Kenyan organizations that manage the lake to constantly monitor the quantity and quality of the water resources in the basin. In addition, various models for groundwater and surface water will be developed and staff will be trained to maintain and use these models for scenario analysis and forecasting. Eventually, all the data that is collected through the project will be organized in a web based database. These data will be made available in appealing GIS/aggregated formats on a public website. All monitoring information and the results of the scenario analysis will be made available in the form of maps, graphs and tables through the Internet.
