The Tanzania Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Program fits in to the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Initiative (RWSSI) developed by the African Development Bank to address the challenge of providing basic water supply and sanitation services to the continent’s population living in the rural areas. The program supports Government’s efforts to achieve the water and sanitation National Growth and Poverty Reduction Strategy (MKUKUTA) targets and the MDGs, thus contributing to poverty eradication. It will increase access to essential water and sanitation facilities for the rural population. The program includes a) access to water supply and sanitation in all districts; b) increased water supply coverage and reduced distance between home and water points; c) reduced water borne and hygiene related diseases; d) community mobilization with gender equality; and f) appropriate water supply technologies whose maintenance can be done locally. The total cost for the 2006/7-2009/10 four-year period is estimated to be UA 223.28 million (USD 328.5m).
The sector goal is improved health and quality of life and reduced poverty of rural Tanzanians. The objective of the program, during 2006/7 to 2009/10, is to provide sustainable safe water supply and sanitation facilities, based on management responsibility and ownership by the users, within easy reach of 69 % of the rural population by the year 2010.
The program will ensure that an additional 6.5 million rural people have access to safe water by 2010 and that 90% of rural Tanzanians have sustained sanitation facilities.
