For over two decades, Eva Muhia has worked closely with national/local governments, regulatory authorities, non-governmental organizations (local and international), and the private sector toward realizing sustainable and equitable solutions for access to and management of sanitation.
Her experiences at various levels in the sanitation value chain exposed her to gaps in the sector that caused inefficiency and dysfunction from outdated technology, punitive regulatory/ legislative environments, gender discrimination, and a general lack of awareness.
She founded the Global Sanitation and Environmental Project (GSEP), a non-profit based in Nairobi to realize synergies and efficiencies for more impactful interventions in the drive toward universal access to sanitation.
Eva is the National Chair of the Kenya Private Sector Sanitation Actors (KPSSA), an organization founded in 2021 as an umbrella body for entrepreneurs in sanitation that promotes ethical industry practices, and self-regulation; KPSSA is an affiliate member of PASA (see below).
Eva is also the Deputy Chair of the Pan African Sanitation Actors (PASA), a continental body representing the private sector and organizations involved in fecal sludge management (FSM) in African countries..
