Title:Determinants for the implementation and administration of water projects in Tanzania
Author:Mascarenhas, A.ISNI
Periodical:Vierteljahres-Berichte: Probleme der internationalen Zusammenarbeit
Geographic term:Tanzania
Subject:water supply
Abstract:The major driving force behind the administrative changes (a new Ministry of Water, Energy and Minerals (MAJI); decentralization) for the provision of water supply to the people of Tanzania has been the national political party, Tanganyika African National Union (TANU) and now Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM). The principle advocated by the party since the Arusha Declaration and its corollary, Socialism and Rural Development, is that the provision of basics, including adequate clean water supply, is the right of all people. This goal, facilitated through villagization, should have been implemented by 1980. This deadline was recently extended to 1991. The priority decision with regard to adequate and clean water supply for all villages is a major development challenge for Tanzanian leadership. The question is whether the administrative set-up of MAJI can reach the target. Fig., notes.
