Here's a way to drive creation of toilets and sewers - money! www.trust.org
"Kenya has 47 counties and none can boast of having an effective sewer system. But by looking at the sewer problem as an income opportunity, county governments could perhaps tackle a myriad of issues at once.
Nairobi County, for instance, has some of the oldest sewer works in the country. Overflows, burst pipes, and illegal sewer diversion for agricultural irrigation are among the problems faced.
So what is preventing more county governments from initiating such inventive projects to tackle sewer problems and energy shortages? Previously, red tape and vested interests made sure that such projects never got off the ground. But now that county governments are required to raise some of their budget locally, they are being forced to look for new ways to solve problems in their areas, and keep voters happy.
The sewage biogas project could help, in terms of environmental and health policies but also the income that county governments could earn. Also this would attract the investment needed to modernize the sewer systems in the country, and allow farmers to use treated sewage as fertilizer, going a long toward helping domestic food production lower input costs."
