The Water Sector Development Programme (WSDP), operating since 2007, is the largest national water programme operating in Africa today. It has a twenty year vision and encompasses not only rural and urban water supply and sanitation but also water resources management and measures to develop sector capacity. WSDP is founded on a sector-wide approach to planning (SWAp) which incorporates structures for joint government-development partner dialogue and financing mechanisms include budget support administered via a basket fund, plus additional ‘earmarked’ funding allocated by a number of development partners (DPs) outside of the basket to support special projects in selected locations.

The official launching of WSDP was done in March 2007, in Moshi town - Kilimanjaro region during Maji (Water) Week commemorations.
