Waris System


WARIS is a monitoring tool that is used to monitor and compare the performance and compliance of Water Service Providers (WSPs) in Kenya.

WARIS has a central shared database with an easy-to-use user interface and different access levels and roles. Its enhanced reporting capability ensures data protection and integrity. The database is also accessible online, with the possibility of offline data entry.

WARIS was designed as an information system with the following objectives:

  • Support the monitoring of the performance of WSPs, Water Works Development Agencies and County Governments in investments and water service provision
  • Facilitate the publication of periodic sector performance review reports
  • Increase transparency in the water and sanitation sectors
  • Improve the accessibility of data and information for monitoring, planning, and decision-making. Support effective management audits.

As part of its mandate under the Water Act 2016, WASREB maintains this national database and information system on water services and reports annually to the public on issues and performance of water supply and sanitation services.

WARIS: The Journey

Since 2005/2006, the tool has progressed through revisions/upgrades and new versions and it is now in the Fourth Version.
