This project is the Phase II of Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Program (RWSSP) which is part of the National Water Sector Development Program and covering Tanzania mainland. The proposed Phase II, jointly prepared with the GOT and the DPs, includes construction of rural water supply and sanitation infrastructure, National Sanitation Campaigns & School WASH, and Sector Management Support. It will bring general improvements in time savings as a result of the reduction in time people spent in collection of water. There will also be cost savings as people will spent less on public health and, also, there shall be a reduction in the spread of waterborne diseases. Implementation of the Program will contribute towards the eradication of poverty and contribute towards meeting of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The Program Phase II will be implemented over a period of four years 2011-2014 at a total cost of UA 200 million.
The sector goal of the program is to improve the health and quality of life of the rural Tanzanians through provision of water and sanitation services on a sustainable basis. Its specific objectives are to improve: (i) district level capacity to implement demand-based RWSS programs; (ii) access of rural communities to water and sanitation services operated and maintained by capable persons; (iii) health & hygiene practices.
This Phase II is expected to provide potable water to an additional 3.6 million people from new infrastructure and 1.0 million from rehabilitated water infrastructure. In respect of sanitation, the beneficiaries will be the school children in 264 schools. Sanitation awareness campaigns will be provided to an estimated 10 million villagers in rural communities.
