Masekelo ward and Ndala ward are the selected project areas in Shinyanga for the GIZ “Scaling up of access to water supply and sanitation services in under-privileged urban areas”. It is currently implementing a scaling up project to connect the wards for the first time to piped water from surface water source through the Shinyanga Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Authority (SHUWASA) water supply network. The scaling up of sanitation services is also part of the expected results for this project. Hence, this SFD report mostly bases itself and follows a first Baseline Study carried out in June 2018.

The current population in the project area could not easily be projected from the census figures of 2012 because the project boundaries do not coincide with census boundaries. The actual total current population (2017) was obtained by head count which was conducted by the Mitaa governments of Ndala, Masekelo and Ishoshandili during the preparation of the Feasibility Study (GFA Consulting Group GmbH 2018).

The safely managed excreta (43%) originate from FS contained but not emptied from onsite systems located in areas of low groundwater pollution risk. Most of that safely managed FS (35%) is from the practise of covering and digging new pits when the old one gets full. In the medium- to long- term, this practise may not be sustainable and FSM improvements to emptying, transport and treatment services will be required in the future.
The balance (58%) of excreta are unsafely managed. Most of which is from FS not contained and not emptied from unsafe pits (40%), and FS emptied but not delivered to treatment (15%).
