The 23rd to the 27th of September, a technical meeting and a Steering Committee Meeting of the Nairobi Water Fund took place which officially launched the Business Case Development study for this fund. This will be the first Water Fund in Africa, after that The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has launched several successful ones in Latin America which are currently up and running.
Part of the meeting was used for reaching consensus on the goals, outcomes, and the modelling approaches with the technical team (Natural Capital Project and TNC). The Steering Committee of the Water Fund came together to be updated on the progress and the approaches and geographic areas that we will be used to create the business cases.
After, a two-day field trip was organized during which the key field stakeholders (farmers unions, extension services and NGOs) were visited to discuss the socio-economic baseline survey and monitoring sites.
