Submitted by Web Master on 25 April 2013

The water sector budget for the financial year 2013/2014 has been reduced to 398.4 billion Tanzanian shillings from 588.1 billion which was allocated to the sector budget in 2012/13, a reduction of about 190 billion shillings. Speaking during the Policy Forum's Breakfast Debate Mr.Fidelis Paul, Policy Analysist of WaterAid, said the reduction will result in the government continuing being donor dependent. He said looking at the 2013/14 national budget 36% of the total budget will be generated from domestic revenue while 64% of the development budget will depend on donors.
