Tanzania has been a partner country of the Belgian governmental cooperation since 1982. The joint efforts of the Tanzanian and Belgian governments concentrate on two priority sectors in the Kigoma Region: basic infrastructure for water and sanitation, and sustainable agriculture.

Water and sanitation

We support the Tanzanian Ministry of Water in developing water supply and sanitation in remote areas. We develop technical solutions to improve access to water in rural areas on the one hand, and we build capacity within the communities for better water management on the other hand. Proper water management by local communities will enhance the sustainability of water and sanitation infrastructures and services.

Sustainable agriculture

We support the Tanzanian Government in developing the value chain of agricultural crops and in increasing private sector participation in the development of commercial agricultural industries.

In order to ensure a maximum impact, we focus on two value chains with highest impact on food security and revenues generation for both women and men. Concretely, the cassava and beans value chains will serve as entry points in optimizing agricultural value chains in Kigoma Region, from production, processing to marketing.

Tanzania has a big potential in producing high quality environmentally sustainable honey. The Tanzanian government and Enabel – via funding of the European Union – are investing in the country’s beekeeping industry as a source for inclusive growth, poverty reduction and food security.
