NAME OF THE PROJECT : Integrated environmental sanitation concepts for poor, underserved and peri-urban areas
LOCATION : Iringa Municipality – Tanzania
CONCERNED POPULATION : ~57.000
IMPLICATION OF THE BENEFICIARIES :
ACRA-CCS works for the realization of a sanitation project in Iringa Municipality, located in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania to promote and to implement sustainable environmental sanitation concepts in a participatory manner in the municipality’s poor, underserved and peri-urban areas, so as to increase access to improved sanitation and to trigger a behavior change.
The project pilots various approaches and intends to address different environmental sanitation challenges in four out of 16 wards of the municipality. Its focus is on improved sanitation facilities in households, schools and health centers, like dispensaries and hospitals, while other aspects of environmental sanitation will be addressed and discussed with the communities and decentralized solutions sought. Of big concern for the municipality is the issue of waste management and waste recycling, which cannot be addressed to its full extend within this project. Storm water management and drainage are also part of the project, but with limited resources. Nevertheless, ACRA-CCS intends to prepare the ground for future activities, which build upon this pilot project.
Therefore, ACRA-CCS kindly requests Artelia’s competences and experiences in the following fields, arranged by priority:
- Support in the development of municipality-wide sanitation master plan;
- As part of such a plan or contributing to it, support is sought for :
- The development of (decentralized) waste storage, treatment and recycling concepts
- The development of storm water management systems;
- The development of a WASH mapping tool (environmental sanitation facilities, water supply network, waste collection, treatment and recycling plants, etc.)
Marie-Aude INACIO, Giress KAPENDA MUNYANDEKWE et Anis BOUKRA have been selected and prepare the mission which will take place in next september.
