Water Sourcing and Sanitation in Rural Kenya

In Kenya, every citizen has a right to water, and the National Water Strategy commits to ensuring that the formal water supply system is accessible to everyone.  However in practice this does not happen. Millions of Kenyans have inadequate access to clean, safe water and rural areas suffer the brunt of this lack of access.  This project will explore household water sourcing and sanitation behavior using primary data collected from carefully selected Kenyan sites that optimize on water source and sanitation options, using a mixture of methodologies including choice experiments. Study innovations will include comparisons between revealed and stated preferences.
