Background: Traditionally,
capital investment projects in the water and sanitation sector in
Tanzania are spearheaded by the Government using budget funds and/or
donor funding (grants or loans). These funds have been insufficient to
adequately support the growing investment requirements of the sector.

Against
this background, the Ministry of Water (MoW) in cooperation with the
German Development Bank (KfW) has established a financing facility for
Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Authorities (UWASAs) in Tanzania which
provides incentives for water utilities to commercially finance smaller
infrastructure projects – the so-called Investment Financing Facility –
Output based Approach (IFF-OBA). It is operated under the Ministry of
Water (MoW) through the Department of Water Supply and Sanitation.

IFF-OBA
provides incentives for utilities to obtain commercial loans to finance
infrastructure investments that improve the level of service and
revenue generation to utilities. After implementation and upon
achievement of pre-determined output targets, the utility is entitled to
receive up to 50% of the total eligible project costs as a grant
element.

IFF-OBA supports an alternative source and method of
funding to implement small and medium sized projects initiated and
spearheaded by Tanzanian UWASAs. Apart from promoting utility ownership
towards the project, the combined effect of liabilities linked to the
loan and an OBA subsidy paid upon achievement of pre-determined and
agreed targets offers incentives to maximise the expected effectiveness
of the project and promote sustainability.

Objective of IFF OBA:
The objective of IFF-OBA is to

  • support selected Tanzanian UWASAs in the preparation and implementation of bankable projects
  • assist Tanzanian Banks in the provision of a sector specific product for public water and sanitation utilities and
  • support the MoW to steer and implement the Programme in line with the established Operational Guidelines.
