Financing sanitation in Dar-Es-Salaam : current challenges and the way forward : paper presented at the East Africa practioners workshop on pro-poor urban sanitation and hygiene, Laico Umbano Hotel, Kigali, Rwanda, march 29th - 31st 2011

This study covers the three municipalities that fall under the Dar Es Salaam City Council : Temeke, Ilala, Kinondoni. It contains a more detailed analysis for Temeke municipality, where WaterAid has been active since 1997 and where additional data could be gathered. The case study focuses on the provision of sanitation services, as per the definition used in Tanzania, which includes, “the provision of appropriate facilities and services for the collection and disposal of human excreta and wastewaters”. The case study examines the effectiveness of public finance for sanitation services at household level only. This may include facilities that are shared by a small number of families (e.g. neighbours) but excludes community facilities (i.e. shared by a large number of transient population in public spaces, such as markets or bus terminals) and school facilities. [authors abstract]

This three-day workshop aims to identify proven good practices in the sanitation and hygiene sector, as well as drawing lessons from failures to enter into the policy dialogue. It focuses on urban sanitation with an emphasis on learning and innovation in the sector. It was organised by : UNICEF, GTZ, WSSCC, WaterAid and IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre, and hosted by the Rwandan Ministry of Health.

The case study focuses on the provision of sanitation services, as per the definition used in Tanzania, which includes, “the provision of appropriate facilities and services for the collection and disposal of human excreta and wastewaters”. The case study examines the effectiveness of public finance for sanitation services at household level only.
