Project Description
Given the transformative nature of the on-going investments in the project Local Government Authorities (LGAs), the proposed Second Additional Financing (AF2) would scale-up these critical infrastructure sub-projects to maximize the development impacts and sustainability of this well-performing project. These include urban roads, streetlights, drainage, public parks, bus/lorry stands/terminals, market and additional sanitary landfills. The majority of these sub-projects proposed for AF2 scale-up were prepared and appraised under the parent/AFI operation but resources were not available at the time to finance them. Under Component 2, the AF2 will consolidate foundational institutional strengthening activities and urban management systems; and further, develop forward-looking and strategic initiatives for project LGAs to formulate directions for future development and galvanize new undertakings. The AF2 will introduce innovations on several fronts: (i) rethink of a business-as-usual way in designing infrastructure (eg. incorporate risk-informed & climate-smart green solutions, adopt urban design and people-centric focus), (ii) push new boundaries in basic service delivery (foremost in the solid waste management sector through promoting community-based approach, enhancing social inclusion and exploring PPP models); and (iii) enhance integrated urban development approach (eg. through cross-sector collaborations to be piloted in Dodoma, and through coordination and integration of urban management systems with various sectors/ government agencies). The AF2 will support the same LGAs as in the parent and AFI project. The AF2 activities are anticipated to balance regional growth, increase access and quality of urban services, improve quality of life and local economic development, strengthen municipal finances and urban management and ultimately, support participating LGAs and Tanzania's urbanization and economic development agenda.
