Water Challenges

With an extremely low level of water storage capacity, and water availability that is highly variable in space and time, Tanzania faces major constraints in securing enough water for its environmental, social, and economic needs.

Our Role

The Tanzania 2030 WRG program was officially launched in October 2013. Since then, we have conducted a hydro-economic analysis and founded three multi-stakeholder partnerships.


Through the 2030 WRG Tanzania program, stakeholders are addressing water challenges via focusing on targeted catchment-level stewardship and agricultural water efficiency initiatives. Industrial and urban water management are also focus areas.


We established our Tanzania program in 2013. In 2014, we advanced our analytic support with a hydro-economic analysis, and our work resulted in a Multi-Stakeholder Platform. Technical working groups have since been established across the thematic areas of water use efficiency, water sources protection, and cross-sectoral collaboration. In 2015, stakeholders refined their broad priorities into a series of tangible partnership initiatives, including the National Multi-Stakeholder Forum, Kilimanjaro Water Stewardship Platform, Great Ruaha Restoration Campaign, and irrigation financing facility.
