Tanzania

Tanzania’s Multi-stakeholder Platform

Work Streams

Developing the Greater Ruaha Restoration Campaign and the Joint Kilimanjaro Water Stewardship Campaign.
The two catchment-level interventions, involving public, private, and civil society stakeholders, aim to reduce the water gap in these important basins, but will also demonstrate models for effective multi-stakeholder water resources management that can be replicated elsewhere in the country. Both initiatives will be launched in early 2016.

Designing innovative financing instruments for water-efficient smallholder agriculture.
Smallholder irrigation in Tanzania is either highly inefficient or undeveloped. Basic water storage and irrigation equipment, such as tanks and small-scale drip kits, are readily available and offer potentially attractive returns, but farmers often lack the finances, skills, and markets to justify adopting new water-productive technologies and approaches. In response, the 2030 WRG is bringing together a range of stakeholders to develop financing solutions that will enable Tanzanian smallholder farmers to increase their productive use of water.

Developing a National Water Resources Information Center.
Tanzania lacks access to water information, which can lead to poor investment decisions in both the public and private sectors, as well as the unnecessary duplication of research, analysis, and data-collection efforts. Through the 2030 WRG partnership, this barrier will be addressed through the collective development of a national, open-source, online water resources information center, with a target start date in 2016, linked to discussions surrounding the development of a National Center of Excellence for the water sector.
