Accelerating Solar Water Pumping via Innovative Financing (Tanzania)
The objective of this project is to help about 165 villages in rural Tanzania get access to a sustainable water supply through improved solar pumping systems. The project supports the Government of Tanzania in moving from dated and inefficient diesel-powered pumps with clean and climate-friendly solar pumping systems. These new systems will help decarbonize off-grid water pumping and significantly reduce the cost of water extraction for at least 500,000 beneficiaries.
The project became effective in September 2019 and is currently under implementation.
