Tanzania: water point mapping
Water point mapping is a tool for collecting data about the functionality and status of improved rural water sources. It has been used in a number of countries across Africa including Tanzania. In Tanzania, water point data has been collected for 13 districts (Igunga, Iramba, Karatu, Kondoa, Kongwa, Monduli, Ngara, Nzega, Sikonge, Singida Rural, Urambo and Uyui) and plans are underway to scale up the exercise nationwide.
The data set presented here contains information on (geo)location, type of waterpoint, its management, who constructed it, when, whether payments are made for water and whether or not the water point is functional.
