SNV Tanzania is not-for-profit international development organisation, working in 38 of the poorest countries worldwide, including 17 countries in Sub Saharan Africa. We focus on Agriculture, Renewable Energy, and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene. SNV’s strategy addresses the following key elements: Inclusive development listens to and engages with people living in poverty, and underprivileged categories of the population such as young women and men. Realizing inclusive and sustained development at scale requires systemic change in sector performance and promoting equality. SNV supports local ownership by strengthening the capacities of local stakeholders in development processes for and on behalf of the poor.

In Tanzania, SNV is implementing WASH SDG Programme in Arusha and Shinyanga Regions. The project aims to sustainably improve access to and use of sanitation services and improve hygiene behaviours in the coming five years (2017-2022). It is built on three core strategic objectives, namely (1) increasing demand for improved WASH facilities and practices, (2) improving the quality of service provision and by (3) improving governance of the sector. The programme will contribute to achieving access to safely managed sanitation and improved hygiene behaviour for 160,000 and 200,000 people respectively in peri-urban/urban areas of Shinyanga and Arusha municipalities/cities. It is a multi-country programme that works with municipal governments to develop inclusive, safe and sustainable city-wide sanitation services.

The WASH SDG Programme is currently in an inception phase (1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018) during which a Legal Scan on Urban Sanitation is to be conducted in order to help inform the programme and shape the development of specific FSM interventions relevant to the two target cities. A legal scan is one of the key first steps when designing or delivering an urban sanitation and hygiene programme. Different aspects of the urban sanitation value chain and sanitation users are addressed in a range of different legal documents. The overall legal picture is often unclear to most stakeholders. The legal scan will therefore help the WASH

SDG Programme to have an overview of legal arrangements that influence a safe and sustainable sanitation service and gain a better understanding of how these are actually enforced within the two target cities.

The WASH SDG Programme is therefore seeking to recruit a specialised consultant to carry out a Legal Scan on Urban Sanitation, focusing on both the actual Standards/Regulations/Policies and their enforcement in both Arusha and Shinyanga, in close collaboration with the SNV SDG team and local partners.

Aim: The Legal Scan on Urban Sanitation aims to provide an up to date overview of the legal arrangements related to urban sanitation in Tanzania and how these are incorporated and enforced at local/district level to both inform the WASH SDG Programmes interventions and guide it in advocating for improvements that facilitate sustainable sanitation and hygiene outcomes for all.

Specific Objectives:

1. Use the frameworks and tools offered by legal and policy arrangements to improve urban sanitation and hygiene outcomes

2. Advocate for improvements in legal, policy and institutional arrangements to facilitate sustainable sanitation and hygiene outcomes for all

3. Identify specific interventions and support required to improve the enforcement of urban sanitation related standards and regulations in both Arusha and Shinyang.


1. Review of all legal, policy and institutional arrangements and documents related to urban sanitation

- Review the recent study entitled “Analysis of Policies, Strategies and Regulatory Frameworks for Urban Sanitation in Tanzania hierarchy of legal documents”

- Analysis of Arusha and Shinyanga level plans, policies, bylaws, guidelines etc. pertaining to urban sanitation legislation

3. Review and analysis of the mechanisms and level of enforcement of urban sanitation related legislation (standards, regulations etc.) in Arusha and Shinyanga

- Analysis of the tools/mechanisms used by the city institutions to enforce urban sanitation legislation

- Analysis and assessment of the level of enforcement (use of scorecard) of urban sanitation legislation in both Arusha and Shinyanga (including successful experiences and current challenges)
