Gatharaini River Cleanup and Bamboo Planting
Gatharaini Water Resource Users Association in partnership with other stakeholders have organised a Gatharaini River Cleanup, Climate Change Awareness and Bamboo planting event to commemorate World Water Day 2020. Like many other urban rivers the river has been degraded to Black Dead water by both solid and effluent by communities living near the river and despite all this the River is used for irrigation and other uses by Communities Downstream and the River is also a tributary of Nairobi River which is also heavily polluted. The event will bring together communities and stake holders using the River and raise awareness on the importance of protecting the River and possible intervention.
