WaterAid has initiated a research project to evaluate the effectiveness of public financing for sustainable household sanitation in Dar es Salaam. This study covers the three municipalities that fall under the Dar es Salaam City Council: Temeke, Ilala, Kinondoni. It contains a more detailed analysis for Temeke municipality, where WaterAid has been active since 1997 and where additional data could be gathered.
The case study focuses on the provision of sanitation services, as per the definition used in Tanzania, which includes, ‘the provision of appropriate facilities and services for the collection and disposal of human excreta and wastewaters’ (Water Supply and Sanitation Act, 2009). The case study examines the provision of sanitation services at household level only. This may include facilities that are shared by a small number of families (eg neighbours) but excludes community facilities (ie shared by a large number of transient population in public spaces, such as markets or bus terminals) and school facilities. The period of analysis spans three years-worth of data: 2006-2009.
