October 14th-18th, 2018 the City of Umeå and its waste and water company (VAKIN) visited Kajiado County, Kenya for collaboration with the county government on integrated environmental systems for waste and water. The visit was very successful in terms of how the partners analyzed and communicated on necessary investigations, policies and plans for developing sustainable waste and water management in Kajiado County which demands partnership between stakeholders representing different parts of the society. The visit also included meetings with community based initiatives which was inspiring for the whole team. The delegation from the City of Umeå included political representatives, the CEO of VAKIN as well as a technical team with me as an senior advisor. The project will be finalized 2019.
