Project General Description

The Monduli District Water Supply Project originated with the Government of Tanzania’s request in the nineties for the Bank Group to finance a water supply project in the area of Mto wa Mbu. The Monduli District is one of the five other districts under the region of Arusha and it is generally sparsely populated (12 persons/km2) although its population has been growing rapidly at between 3.8 and 4.3% (national average is 2.8%) due in part to in-migration from other more densely populated areas (estimated at 9.5% of total population growth). The project will meet one of the most critical needs of a population living under the harsh conditions of an arid environment, vulnerable to variations in annual rains and to inaccessibility of suitable water sources for domestic and livestock consumption. It will also address the inherent fragility of such environments to enhance pasture management while protecting watersheds from degradation, and catering for wildlife. The project will focus on: (i) Capacity Building at the individual, community and District Council levels (ii) Provision of Water Supply Infrastructure for domestic and livestock consumption (iii) Environment and Watershed Protected in the project centers (iv) Sanitation Improvement for the residents of the project area, and (v) Project Management and Works Supervision. It will be implemented over a period of 36 months with a total cost estimated at UA 17.234 million.

Project Objectives

The project will contribute towards meeting the following sector goal: Improved coverage of water and sanitation leading to sustainable livelihood in the form of improved health of population, reduction in livestock vulnerability and improved productivity, and increase in other water based economic activities. The objective of the project is to ensure that the population of 18 villages and two town settlements have adequate and sustainable access to safe, adequate and reliable drinking water supply to meet demand by 2011; enhanced awareness of sanitation and health; and year round availability of water for livestock.


The water supply capacity will be adequate to meet the demand of the present population up to 2011 when it will reach 103,000 and the livestock will reach 143,000.
