Tanzania's infrastructure to improve with updated CAS
23 February 2011
Tanzania's infrastructure is set for improvements thanks to the World Bank's Country Assistance Strategy (CAS).
The updated document will seek to ensure progress is made in developments for utilities, ports and railroads, among other areas.
With the consultation process expected to finish at the end of February, there will be an opportunity for individuals to offer feedback on the current CAS, which has so far committed $2.85 billion (£1.7 billion) of funds for 26 different projects.
"Consultations with various tiers of government, civil society, donors and the private sector have been an integral part of the CAS formulation process," said John Murray McIntire, World Bank country director for Tanzania, Uganda and Burundi.
As well as transport infrastructure, other areas that will be considered are energy, water and sanitation.
It comes after East African Business Week reported a wind farm project - which will be located in Makambako in the newly-created Njombe region - is being built in Tanzania.
