WATER MANAGEMENT IN ZANZIBAR
Most of Zanzibar’s one million inhabitants are without running water. In some areas, the water is too salty for human consumption. Uncontrolled urban growth is part of the problem. Tens of thousands of tourists visit the springs outside Stone Town, the main source of Zanzibar’s water supply, placing significant strain on an already outdated water system. Communities are now forming cooperatives, with assistance from UNDP, the United Nations Development Programme, to bring piped water to households."
