Climate smart cities for Tanzania: Supplying water and sanitation services for all


Last month, the Dutch Ambassador Jeroen Verheul, virtually opened a 3 days’ workshop in Dodoma about ‘Strategies and Approaches for Extension of Water Supply and Sanitation Services to Low Income Population’. This workshop, organized by the Tanzanian Ministry of Water, ATAWAS and VEI, aimed to discuss and address challenges in implementing policies on water supply and sanitation services to low income households in Tanzania.

VEI develops and implements water operator partnerships with numerous water operators worldwide, including with water operators in Arusha and Mwanza.

The focus of the Netherlands in #Tanzania is to jointly promote Climate Smart Cities for Tanzania #CSC4T, with extra attention to strengthening links between tackling multiple urban challenges as Water, Sanitation and Hygiene #WASH and the preservation of ecosystems and solid waste management. In collaboration with the private sector, government, civil society and other partners we are working to address multiple urban challenges by helping to build inclusive, resilient and sustainable cities for all Tanzanians.

Current Water Operator Partnerships between VEI and Waternet and water operators in Arusha, Mwanza and Morogoro are good examples linking urban challenges with supporting water resources management to improve operational, maintenance, financial and administrative processes.
