Tanzania and the EIB

The EIB has worked with Tanzania since 1977.

Thousands of people across the country can benefit from our infrastructure investments, for example in the road, water and energy sectors.

One key example of our impact is the rehabilitation of the M1, the main road connection from Malawi to Dar es Salaam port; our funding contributed to reducing travel and transport costs.  We have also financed the protection of rural roads from extreme weather, which often prevented farmers from accessing local markets.

Water is life. A recent project, part of the Lake Victoria Water and Sanitation Programme, also includes a public health education and awareness-raising hygiene campaign, not only to give access to clean water and sanitation, but also to help face the COVID-19 outbreak in informal settlements and vulnerable communities.
