The Tanzania government will float a tender for constructing a Sh200 billion wastewater treatment plant at Dar es Salaam before the end of this financial year. The project is being supported by South Korea. The project is under the WSDPII which has added two goals: improving sanitation services in urban areas and improving status of hygiene in rural and urban areas. The first phase had four goals: increasing access to clean and safe water in rural and urban areas, improving water quality management through community involvement, ensuring management of water resources and strengthening capacity of institutions dealing with delivery of water services. Under the second phase which has started this year and is set to end in 2025, it will mobilise more investors to invest in improving sanitation.
