Accelerating Solar Water Pumping via Innovative Financing (Tanzania)
This project's is designed to help about 165 villages in rural Tanzania to gain 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 to 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.
