Access to clean water remains a struggle for many of the poorest households in rural areas. GPRBA collaborated with the World Bank in Tanzania to bring safe, clean water to 165 villages in the country by combining blended financing with emerging technologies including solar water pumps, pre-paid meters, chlorination and remote sensors.
GPRBA is supporting its first irrigation project, designed to help small-scale farmers stabilize production and to stave off the challenges of drought and excessive rainfall due to climate change.
