Our Priorities: Water
'Water Futures Partnership'
Named after Africa's highest mountain, Kilimanjaro is one of Tanzania's most popular beer brands. The brewery in Dar es Salaam in which it is produced lies in an area of potential water stress. As part of our Water Futures global partnership, with WWF and GIZ (an agency that acts for the German government to promote economic, ecological and social development), we have undertaken a project to understand the potential water scarcity and quality risks affecting this brewery and the local area. This includes risks from population growth, deteriorating water quality and impacts of climate change.
As a result of the risk assessment, we are working with local partners from the area, including the Ministry of Water and Irrigation, on a shared watershed protection project to manage current and future supply and demand pressures facing Dar es Salaam and the Wami-Ruvu River basin.
