Practical Action Consultancy to undertake a Baseline Assessment in Turkana County - Kenya

Practical Action is an international development organisation putting ingenious ideas to work so people in poverty can change their world.

We have commenced a 2-year project in East Africa, implemented in Turkana County.

The primary objective of the project is to contribute to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal Target 6.1: to achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all.

The project will do this by improving access to clean drinking water from an improved source for 48,000 individuals, including pastoralists, in rural arid and semi-arid in Turkana County, north west Kenya.

The project seeks the services of a consultant or consultancy firm to carry out a comprehensive baseline survey in the project areas to generate first-hand information to be used for project planning and for monitoring and evaluation (M&E).

The baseline will serve as a benchmark to measure progress, as well as provide information to a wider stakeholder group on understanding water access situation as well as policies and regulations that support water management in Turkana County.

The purpose of the baseline survey is to collect baseline data for key project indicators which will be monitored during project implementation to assess progress as well as the project impact. Baseline indicators to be assessed include:

Water access

  • Number of people in the target areas accessing water – access to water will be defined and presented according to the JMP ladder of access
  • Water storage/treatment practices
