Kenya: More Water Shortages in the Future

We are likely to have more water shortages in future if the country's rapid population growth rate is not addressed. A development report shows that the country's water demands will exceed freshwater sources, threatening livelihoods across the country. Fish stocks are also expected to decrease rapidly due to overfishing and changing water temperatures. Nyokabi Musila is from AFIDEP.
