Study of solar-powered prepaid water systems in Tanzania

Between May 2016-October 2017 Water Mission-Tanzania (WM-T), in partnership with World Bank, implemented experimental field trials in Tanzania in order to determine the viability and sustainability of solar-powered piped water supply systems and smart water metering technology as a mechanism to improve financial accountability for rural and urban water schemes; and to provide evidence of the potential of smart water dispensers (SWDs) and solar pumping in both rural and urban water sectors to promote sustainable and affordable water service delivery in Tanzania.
