The National Water Sector Development Strategy (NWSDS) sets out how the Ministry responsible for Water will implement the
National Water Policy to achieve the NSGRP (MKUKUTA) targets. This will, in turn, guide the formulation of the Ministry’s
Harmonised National Water Sector Development Plan and the Water Sector Development Programme as inputs into the Medium
Term Expenditure Framework financial planning process. The previous situation indicated that initiatives within the Ministry
responsible for Water and its subsectoral projects had moved away from the normal logical progression of the policy – strategy –
legislation - planning continuum. These initiatives include preparation of the National RWSS Strategy and Investment Program and
the National Strategy for Improvement of UWSS Delivery; and the review of water resources, urban water supply and sewerage,
and rural water supply legislation. Whilst the various on-going initiatives have required consideration of some of the issues that
should have been included in a NWSDS, they had not been examined on a harmonised basis across the sub-sectors, and this has
resulted in a number of potential duplications or omissions.
