Access to safe, reliable, and affordable water remains a major challenge for many communities and households across Kenya, and this challenge will likely be exacerbated by the impacts of climate change and rapid population growth in coming decades. A diversity of approaches is needed to protect and enhance livelihoods that are vulnerable to environmental changes. In contrast to significant foreign aid projects and non-profit involvement in Kenya, community-based development acknowledges the ways in which Kenyan communities themselves are best suited to prioritize, design, and guide development solutions. This article seeks to identify the benefits of a community-based approach for sustainable water management in rural Kenya, as well as explore the role of outside actors under this framework.
