The Tanzania government has signed an agreement for a grant with the World Bank amounting to $4.5 million (equivalent to Sh10.35 billion) to improve water supply through improved solar pumping systems. The project, under the Global Partnership for Results-Based Approaches (GPBRA), will be implemented in 165 villages. Speaking during the signing of the grant agreement on September 24, the Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Water, Dr Kitila Mkumbo said the introduction of solar water pumping systems is expected to significantly reduce operation and maintenance costs for Community Based Water Supply Organizations (CBWSOs).
