The Water and Development Alliance (WADA) of USAID and The Coca-Cola Company (TCCC) supported a program for the improved management of water and watershed resources, access to sustainable safe water and provision of sanitation services and hygiene education in the Wami-Ruvu and Pangani River basins of Tanzania in 2007 and 2008. Follow-on funding was provided by USAID Tanzania in 2008/09.
This Learning Review was not intended to be an evaluation of WADA in Tanzania, the agencies responsible for its funding or implementation, or an assessment of the programʼs impacts. It was instead expected to identify and draw upon selected learning opportunities from the WADA experience between 2007 and 2009 that can enable the follow-on WADA funding to be used as appropriately, effectively and sustainably as possible.
At the time of this review a further round of USAID/TCCC support, referred to as WADA II, was underway within the Tanzania Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (iWASH) program under the management of the Global Water for Sustainability Program (GLOWS) at Florida International University. This Learning Review was commissioned to capture the experiences of “WADA I” and draw out the main implications for iWASH/WADA II.
