Songwe River Project
The primary objectives of the project are to stabilise the Songwe River Course, and to improve the socio-economic welfare of the people living in and around the Songwe River basin. This is considered to be achieved by the stabilization of the river course and development of hydropower, irrigation, fisheries, tourism, etc.
