Tanzania | Maji na Usafi wa Mazingira (MUM)
USAID's Maji na Usafi wa Mazingira (MUM) Activity aims to improve Tanzanian systems for planning, financing, and implementing actions to expand access to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and water resources management services. The Activity collaborates with national, regional, and district stakeholders, such as the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency, Local Government Authorities, Community-Based Water Supply Organizations, Basin Water Boards, and Water User Associations.
- Increase access to sustainable water services managed by the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency and urban water utilities
- Increase access to finance for water, sanitation, and hygiene
- Strengthen the market for sanitation and hygiene products and services
- Strengthen basin water boards and water user associations to enhance stewardship of water resources
- Cross-cutting: Advance gender equality and engage youth and women in the governance and management of multiple-use water resources and services
MUM works in 10 Districts within the Morogoro, Iringa, Rukwa, and Njombe Regions, and in 12 priority catchments within the Rufiji, Lake Nyasa, Lake Tanganyika, and Lake Rukwa basins. The Activity uses four complementary implementation strategies: building ownership through continuous stakeholder engagement, strengthening organizational systems and services, applying market-based principles, and learning by doing to expand and sustain the provision of governance of WASH services.
