A major sustainability challenge threatens to undermine recent efforts to increase spending on rural water supply in Tanzania. Surveys have found that only 54% of existing rural waterpoints are functional, and that only two years after installation, already a quarter of waterpoints are no longer functioning. In the rush to spend new funds, there is a risk that the sustainability of new waterpoints could drop even lower if best practices are not followed and if standards are allowed to fall.
