The African Development Bank (AfDB) has approved on December 19th 2012, a USD 21 million package to finance the implementation of the Zanzibar Urban Water and Sanitation Project in the United Republic of Tanzania. The Government will contribute 10% of the project costs.

The project will be implemented from 2013 in the Unguja municipality which is Zanzibar's administrative center and the hub of its economic, cultural and tourist activities. It is scheduled to be completed after four years.

At completion, the project will lead to improvements in the water supply and sanitation infrastructure in the municipality and contribute to the country's socio-economic development and improvement in the standards of living of the population by ensuring equitable and sustainable provision of reliable water and sanitation services.
