Dorsch International Consultants and AHT GROUP conduct Joint Feasibility Study for Water Security in Tanzania

Both urban centres are situated on the Zambia corridor with Tunduma being a classic fast-growing border town merging with its Zambian counterpart. Their specific location provides them with a particular importance for the regional economic development.

Infrastructure and municipal services in both towns, however, have lacked investment and are therefore not keeping up with the increasing demand – which is already showing negative consequences.

The Feasibility Study will identify infrastructure that aims to improve the water security for the two towns’ rapidly increasing population. An “integrated and holistic approach” (see graphic) will be applied that addresses several sectors such as water, wastewater, solid waste and town planning to ensure long-term water security. Within the framework of the Programme, individual infrastructure projects for each town shall be elaborated.

The Project is funded through German Financial Cooperation with Tanzania as part of the Climate Adapted Infrastructure and Integrated Water Resources Management Program.

The consultant team consist of multidisciplinary experts from the Joint Venture between AHT GROUP GmbH, Dorsch International Consultants GmbH and the Tanzanian Sub-Consultants Netwas and BORDA. The International Cooperation Cluster of Dorsch Gruppe is particularly proud to kick-start another joint project of two sister companies, adding to the already fruitful collaboration across entities.
