The United Republic of Tanzania

Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF)

The Government of the United Republic of Tanzania (GoT), with assistance from Development Partners (DPs), has been implementing the Water Sector Development Programme (WSDP) since 2006. This Programme focuses on prioritized water resources management and service delivery in the water and sanitation sector. The proponent of the Programme is the GoT, while the Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MoWI) is the implementing institution on behalf of the Government.

The WSDP was set up as a SWAP arrangement with a number of DPs providing financing in the form of basket lending. In order to ensure adequate environmental and social management during the Programme implementation, and to comply with national environmental laws and the World Bank’s safeguard policies, an Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) and Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF) were developed by the MoWI as part of the WSDP-I in 2006, and was updated in 2014 for the WSDP-II.
