Kenya's First Desalination Plant Set up In Mombasa
2030 is about to clock, as countries strive to meet the united nations standard development goals, lets take a look at how Kenya is putting up projects to provide clean water and improved sanitation.
Mtongwe, on the outskirts of Mombasa, hosts the Bilal Muslim Mission of Kenya's solar-powered water desalination plant.
With settlers in this zone suffering from high salty undrinkable water, the plant is set to turn salt water into drinkable water with the energy from the sun.
This comes after Water, Sanitation, and Irrigation cabinet secretary Sicily Kariuki assured Kenyans that Mombasa's Governor Ali Hassan Joho desalination projects are set to address water shortages in the region.
With a climatic change exacerbation potentiality, an increase in fossil fuel dependence, and a rise in greenhouse, gas emission, Kenya and Africa at large is set to see more desalination projects.
The removal of other minerals and salts from undrinkable ocean water will offer millions of Kenyans clean and safe affordable drinking water.
On the county's northside of the mainland area, the Mombasa desalination project handed over to the almar water solution will set work on the roll for a duration of 25 years.
Most American desalination plants are used to purify less saline "brackish water" from rivers and bags. The main purpose of the desalination project set in Mombasa is to curb the unavailability of safe and affordable drinking water that millions of citizens in the country are facing.
Kenya will be the first African country through this unreverent to pave way for the development and improvement of clean and safe water provision.
Through desalination projects, stakeholders, consultants, contractors, suppliers, and government stakeholders come together to discuss how Kenya can achieve clean water and sanitation and curb water challenges.
In most urban middle-class settlement neighborhoods, water costs less per liter where the supply is piped, but in informal settlements, their main source is from water vendors whose price is determined by the distance covered.
The covid - 19 pandemic has enhanced the role of hygiene and water play in people's lives and the safe operation in the health sector.
The enjoyment of the right to water, in Kenya, especially in urban centers faces a deep inequality. It is defined as the right of everyone to sufficient, safe, acceptable, and physically accessible water for personal and domestic uses.
This is where the government interest takes a full turn and the call for government entities both at the national and county levels to get involved in the access to clean water and sanitation for Kenyan citizens as a whole.
