Project General Description

The Strategic Sanitation Plan Development intends to close the resulting gaps by providing the AMC and its partner the Arusha Urban Water and Sewerage Authority with a Strategic Plan and Implementation Programme that will guide the continuous improvement of sanitation in Arusha. The project includes development of a Strategic Framework, an Implementation Plan and Programme and will include Pilot Works. The Framework will propose a wide variety of combinations of technical strategies that are compatible with of institutional solutions for service provision and financing mechanisms within the constraints imposed by risks and social and environmental impacts. The Pilot works will, in the early stages of assignment, serve to generate demand and then inform and residents on the variety of technology and other dimensions of strategy, and towards the end demonstrate the application of proposed strategies. The Implementation Plan will provide modus operandi to render the strategies operational. Most significantly it will provide the AMC and AUWSA a basis to seek funding from external and internal sources.

Project Objectives

The global objective is to contribute to overall improvement of sanitation in the Arusha Municipality through a viable programme of investment in the infrastructure defined by a strategic approach to planning. The specific objective is to endow AMC and its partners involved in the provision of sanitations services with a broad set of strategies and a detailed implementation plan to improve the functioning of services for storm water, solid waste, human and domestic waste and drinking water supply to meet the basic needs of residents to meet the demands of residents currently underprovided with the services.


The beneficiaries of the project are primarily the Arusha Municipal Council and the Arusha Urban Water and Sewerage Authority as the key agencies involved in sanitation planning. Since however the planning is ultimately intended for the residents, the ultimate beneficiaries are the residents of Arusha municipality, as well as the collaborating CBOs/NGOs and the local private sector whose roles will be impacted by the plan developed as a result of this project.
