Environmental and Social Impact Assessment for the Proposed Climate Resilient Water Supply Project in Busega, Bariadi & Itilima Districts, Simiyu Region

The Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MoWI) is currently implementing the Water Sector Development
Programme that aims to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities in rural and urban areas in
Tanzania. Under this programme, MoWI is planning to construct a water supply scheme in Simiyu region
from Lake Victoria to the districts of Busega, Maswa, Bariadi, Meatu and Itilima. The project is entitled
Climate Resilient Water Supply Project in Busega, Bariadi and Itilima Districts, Simiyu Region, hereinafter
referred to as the Simiyu Water Supply Project.
The project is designed to alleviate the adverse impacts of climate change, which is predicted to worsen
the water supply situation in the semi-arid areas of Tanzania. Extracting water from Lake Victoria offers the
most reliable and robust approach to improving the water supply coverage in Simiyu region.
