The initiative from the Government of Tanzania through the Ministry of Water is to collect and establish baseline information aiming for better service delivery. Water Point Mapping (WPM) is defined as the process of locating water infrastructure and related information. WPM helps in monitoring the distribution and status of water points and can be used to inform the planning of investments to improve coverage. In rural areas in Tanzania, WPM is used to highlight issues of equity and functionality at district level. Furthermore, WPM supports the establishment of a baseline of water supply coverage and for regular reporting (sector performance monitoring). WPM can also be used to inform a broader strategy in the sector.
