REPORTS TO: Country Director

Water For People is implementing an ambitious Destination 2030 Strategy in collaboration with its One For All alliance partners (IRC WASH and Water For Good). The strategy details two complimentary impact pathways at local and national level building on the successful Water For people ‘Everyone Forever’ model.

The National Impact Adviser will lead a program of work, to support a stronger water and sanitation system, in order to meet national SDG targets. This will involve clear understanding of current sector strengths and weaknesses, and identification of points where Water For People can (most) usefully contribute. The program of work will seek to influence policy changes, carry-out research, build and support advocacy and develop strong strategic alliances, with government, and others in the sector.

Water For People will use the work it is involved in at district level in Tanzania and accumulated experience from its work across the region and that of other WASH stakeholders at the national level, to inform priorities. To develop the program, the Adviser will build on a prior assessment of WASH system Building Blocks and in consultation with Country Director develop a comprehensive program to respond to identified challenges in the WASH system in Tanzania. Once the program is fully developed, the Adviser will be responsible for spearheading the execution of activities to achieve its objectives in close collaboration with the Country Director, Program Manager, Africa Regional Team, and Global Influence Team.
