During November 20th-25th, two teams from Sweden representing Region Västerbotten and Lycksele Municipality, worked with their partners in Homa Bay County in a comprehensive program for equal health and sustainable waste and water management.

I am contracted by the Swedish organisations as a project manager, facilitator and advisor.

The program contained meetings with the newly elected governor of Homa Bay County, HE Gladys Wanga, other representatives for the political wing, as well as representives for the technical wing of the administration. The program also contained a number of field visits, as well as conference for stakeholders in Homa Bay working for equal health and sustainable waste and water management.

We finalized the program in Kisumu, Kenya meeting representatives for Kisumu County Government, Migori County Government, Siaya County Government, Busia County Government and Homa Bay County Governments since Region Västerbotten and other organisations in the County of Västerbotten are planning for a partnership on health, resilience in relation to climate change and environment.

The program was very successful and important since follow-up, learning, dialogue and planning for the future were necessary for the parties.

The projects are funded by Swedish International Centre for Local Democracy (ICLD):
