Water, Environment & Natural Resources
The County system of governance was brought into being after the first election under the new constitution that was held on 3rd March 2013. Mombasa County was one of them.
Under the functions of the County government as outlined in part 2 of the fourth schedule, water and sanitation, Environment and Natural Resources are some of the functions that have been transferred to the County Governments from the National Government. And in order to operationalize the above devolved functions, Mombasa County Government created the Department of Water, Environment and Natural Resources.
Generally, the department strives to achieve environmental sustainability, natural resource management efficiency and balanced ecosystems through policy formulation and implementation, advocacy, awareness, community participation, resource mobilization, collaborations as well as public service delivery. By acknowledging a holistic management to our natural resources and biodiversity, we aspire to be a global leader in Water, Environment and Natural Resource Management.
