Existing water service concepts and practice within the Sub Sahara African region, including Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, Somalia, Ghana, Senegal, Malawi, Gambia and Cote d' Ivoire, has demonstrated that, the absence of Sustainable capital funds and appropriate water management models are the major obstacles for water development in this region. This thesis has critically evaluated a number of different capital funding methods, including loans from the World Bank, to formulate an ideal theoretical solution for water services in Tanzania. The concept of establishing capital funds from local financial institutions, proposals for the control of capital funds, and the provision of special training before and during implementation are key aspects of a new approach. The research has successfully developed a new water management model, which is sustainable and appropriate for water problems in Tanzania (sub-Sahara African countries) The model newly established methods for generating capital funds from local sources including tariffs review and mass contribution has been critically evaluated for assurance of its sustainability in practice, to protect the affordability to all water users and assessing the value of willingness to pay when the model is adopted. However, the localisation through structured systematic participation and greater recognition of water users in the model has been evaluated and identified as a new Significant bond for making collective and effective decisions in water services. Furthermore, based on the designed research objectives, this research has evaluated the differences and contributions of the new developed model in comparison with previous practiced models (privatisation and public services) in Tanzania to develop conclusions and recommendations for future studies.
