TANZANIA: Ten Dams will Collect Rainwater to Serve the Cities of Dodoma and Singida.

Ten dams are being built in Tanzania's Dodoma and Singida areas, according to Jumaa Aweso, minister of water and irrigation. In a climate-changed environment, future infrastructure will gather rainwater to provide families, farmers, and herders.

A new initiative will undoubtedly help the residents of Dodoma and Singida with their water demands. It entails the building of 10 dams. The initial infrastructure's construction began on August 3, 2022, under the direction of Jumaa Aweso, Tanzania's minister of water and irrigation.

The first water reservoir will be built in the village of Kelema in the Chemba district (Dodoma region). The future dams, according to Tanzanian authorities, will be filled during the rainy season to irrigate plantations during periods of severe drought.

A $1.93 million investment

Weather has reportedly ravaged crops and livestock in Tanzania's two target regions, such as Dodoma and Singida, forcing many people to flee their homes in search of water and food.

The new dams will help Tanzanian farmers increase their output, thereby enhancing the country's citizens' access to food. Jumaa Aweso, Tanzania's Minister of Water and Irrigation, predicts that the total project will cost 4.5 billion Tanzanian shillings (about $1.93 million USD).

23 other areas in Tanzania, including Dodoma and Singida, are also experiencing water shortages. The Tanzanian government is also concentrating on the delivery of drinking water in order to meet the population's needs for water (DWSS). In the Arusha region, the most recent of these projects was started in August 2022. New pipelines will be installed, in addition to the building of auxiliary boreholes.

The Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Improvement Project, funded by the Tanzanian government to the tune of US$5.1 million (12 billion Tanzanian shillings), will provide 200,000 cubic metres of drinking water primarily in the Miserani and Mswakini areas of Monduli district, which has a population of at least 158,000.
