Dar es Salaam Metropolitan Development Project

The development objective of the Dar es Salaam Metropolitan Development Project is to improve urban services and institutional capacity in the Dar es Salaam metropolitan area, as well as to facilitate potential emergency response.

DMDP has been grouped into various categories. The first includes priority infrastructure that will see improvements and constructions of local and feeder roads in the urban core to alleviate congestion hotspots, and support public transit, mobility, and connectivity to low income communities, especially improving accessibility to the bus rapid transit (BRT) system.

The second group involves upgrading of environmental related works, including storm water drainage, sanitation, tertiary solid waste management, street lights; and community related amenities, including parks, markets, and bus stands. The third on the other hand involves institutional strengthening, capacity building, and urban analytics will support development of metropolitan governance arrangements and systems.
