The kickoff event was followed by meetings, workshops and discussion between the Bremen Overseas Research and Development Association (BORDA), Hamburg Wasser, Dar es salaam Water and Sewerage Authority (DAWASA), Dar es Salaam Water and Sewerage Corporation(DAWASCO) and the Ministry of Water (MoW). Since 2009, Dar es Salaam and Hamburg have worked together on this issue. Both cities were awarded a grant by the European Development Fund in order to better implement water and sanitation services in peri-urban and urban areas.
It is expected that this project will increase the capacity of the water and sanitation authorities. Together with DAWASA and DAWASCO, BORDA will develop a business plan for decentralized waste water services in selected areas in Dar es Salaam
