250,000 residents in Mwanza, Tanzania, will benefit from improved water and sanitation and a cleaner environment as part of the Lake Victoria Water and Sanitation Programme. The project is part of a three country initiative to improve water in towns around the lake in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. This includes new water infrastructure, as well as public health education and awareness-raising hygiene campaigns. This will also strengthen resilience to the coronavirus pandemic in informal settlements and vulnerable communities. The project is implemented by local partners and backed by the European Investment Bank in partnership with UN-Habitat, Agence Française de Développement (AFD), KfW and the European Commission.
