Tanzania

Tanzania joined SWA in 2010. The WASH sector in Tanzania uses several dialogue mechanisms to engage stakeholders. The WSDP II programme is sub-divided into sub-sector components each managed by a Technical Working Group (TWGS). Along with TWGs meetings, joint sector reviews and supervision mission are conducted every six months. Further to TWGS and joint missions CSOs prepare equity report that provide insight of WASH sector from independent observer perspective. Development Partners have established independent working group for coordination purposes. All these dialogue mechanisms include multiple stakeholders from Government, Development Partners, NGOs and CSOs. In 2019 the sector conducted a forum during Maji week, the first Maji week Scientific Conference. The conference brought together academia, policy makers and practitioners to deliberate on policy, science and practice as a nexus and come up with policy recommendations and areas that need further research.
