Tanzanian water authorities on Sunday announced that they would organize a meeting of stakeholders aimed at deliberating on means and ways of ending water shortage in Dodoma, the capital of Tanzania.
Minister for Water Jumaa Aweso announced plans to convene the meeting when he launched the third phase of the country’s Water Sector Development Program, a five-year initiative estimated to cost 6.5 billion U.S. dollars. He said the meeting will be attended by officials from the Ministry of Finance and Planning and development partners, but failed to provide the schedule of the meeting.
Aweso said the national capital of Dodoma should be supplied with adequate water to meet the demands of a growing city.
Aweso added potential development partners in the water sector will be invited to the meeting to give their technical and financial inputs on how to improve the water supply in the national capital.
