Services and Supply Chains - The Role of the Domestic Private Sector in Water Service Delivery in Tanzania.

Services and Supply Chains - The Role of the Domestic Private Sector in Water Service Delivery in Tanzania.

Date: October 2011
Creator: Bayliss, Kate & Tukai, Rehema
Description: This report presents findings from a review of the service activities of informal private water vendors in Dar es Salaam. Tanzania’s capital is a rapidly growing city, and around 70% of the population lacks proper housing and lives in informal settlements. Large parts of the city remain unserved by the water utility and many of those who have access to the piped network suffer from intermittent supply. As a result, small-scale private water vendors provide an essential service for many, in particular low-income households in the city.
