The Government of Kenya has identified four key strategic areas under ‘’The Big Four’’ Plan to focus over the next five years that will accelerate broad based economic growth. Important to the Authority is the second area that focuses on initiatives that guarantee food security and improved nutrition to all Kenyans by 2022.

In view of this, two programmes were initiated; the Household Irrigation Water Storage Programme and rehabilitation and construction of community water pans. The Authority implements water harvesting and storage initiatives to stabilize irrigation water for sustainability in production, food security both at household and community levels and efficient utilization of irrigation infrastructure.
