Work is set to start on the third phase of the country’s water sector development programme, priced at $6.5bn (over 15trn/-).
Water Minister Jumaa Aweso said when launching the programme. He said WSDP III is intended to ensure sustainable availability of water distribution across the country.
The five years project scheduled for 2022 to 2026 represents an increase of $3.3bn/- to what was estimated during WDSP II, which phased out last December, he said.
The third phase is prioritized to deal with water resource management, development, quality, water supply and sanitation.
Budgetary allocation for this phase was raised to elevate water sector performance, permanently solving all setbacks to reliable water supply and quality aspects.
