The Ministry Water Sector has its fundamental goal and purpose as conserving, managing and protecting water resources for socio-economic development. Its aim is to improve the living standards of people by ensuring proper access to available water resources. The ministry was created in 2003 following a separation from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources. The split was aimed at consolidating the responsibility for the management and development of water resources under a single Minister.
