Fredrick Atwa, Bonface Imbali Mudi

Kenya’s Vision 2030 has an ambitious target of ensuring universal access to water and improved sanitation services by 2030. This aspiration is also reflected in the Kenya Environmental Sanitation and Hygiene Policy (KESHP) 2016–2030 that aims to ensure 100% access to improved sanitation services by 2030. Kenya’s renewable water resource per capita is projected to fall below the absolute water scarcity level of 500m3 per year by 2030 due to population growth with poor sanitation estimated to cost Kenya’s economy Ksh. 27 billion annually. This study seeks to investigate the influence of monitoring and evaluation planning on performance of water supply projects in Kakamega County. The study adopted descriptive research design, which guaranteed ease in appreciating the problem under study. Primary data from staff involved in project monitoring and evaluation of the 28 water supply projects within Kakamega County making a total of 189 formed the target population. A sample size of 128 respondents was used to represent the target population. A self-administered questionnaire was used for data collection. The questionnaire was pilot tested on 5% of the sample size to ensure that it was manageable, relevant and effective. Pearson correlation analysis showed that there was a general moderate positive relationship between monitoring and evaluation planning and performance of water supply projects in Kakamega County. Combined multiple regression analysis revealed that there was a significant positive relationship between monitoring and evaluation planning and performance of water supply projects in Kakamega County. It was concluded that monitoring and evaluation planning had an influence on performance of water supply projects in Kakamega County. It is recommended that the County Government of Kakamega should come up with clear policies and guidelines to ensure mandatory monitoring and evaluation planning in all water projects in the county.
