Kenya Water Towers Agency (KWTA)
Logo Design Competition
The Kenya Water Towers Agency (KWTA) is a State Corporation under the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. It was established in 2012 through Kenya Gazette Supplement No. 27, Legal Notice No. 27 of 20th April, 2012.
The mission of the Agency is to sustainability manage water towers and their ecosystems through coordination and conservation for socio-economic development. The Government of Kenya, in 2008, recognized the threat to Mau Forest Complex and other water towers and formed a Taskforce drawn from Kenya Forest Service, Kenya Wildlife Service, Water Resources Authority and key ministries.
The Taskforce responsibility was to study and make recommendations on the immediate, short and long-term options for restoring the entire Mau Forest Complex and other water towers for the present and future generations. There are currently eighteen (18) gazetted water towers and more than one hundred (100) pending gazettement.
