Kisumu Campus

Dr. Emily Chepkoech

Welcome Note From Campus Principal

Kenya Water Institute (KEWI) – Kisumu Campus, situated about 8 kilometers East of Kisumu city at Kibos Centre, was established in September 2012 as a result of the need to have a Water Training and Research facility for the Western Kenya Region and as part of the initiative to devolve KEWI services to all the 47 counties of the Republic of Kenya.

Its proximity to Lake Victoria where major rivers flow into, water towers like Mau Forest Complex, Mount Elgon and Cherangany Hills provides a lot of potential especially in Water Resource and Management Technology and Water Research and Wastewater Management. The campus has a facility that can host a research centre in relation to water sector.

To address its expansion agenda, the campus has a 20 acre piece of land in Miwani which will be used as an international training and research centre once fully developed. This will help enrich the institute’s core mandate of Training and Research by all stakeholders in the water sector.
