Poor sanitation costs Tanzania heavily - WB
Written by ABDUEL ELINAZA
POOR sanitation costs Tanzania one per cent of the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) every year.
A study carried out by the Water and Sanitation Programme (WSP) estimates that each year, management of garbage, costs the nation roughly 300bn/-. This sum, according to the report issued in 2013, was equivalent to US$5 per person.
WSP is a trust fund administered by the World Bank geared at improving access to water and sanitation for poor people.
WSP works in more than 25 countries through regional offices in Africa, East and South Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean and an office in Washington, D.C.
