Implementation of the 20-year Rural Water Supply Programme (1971-1991) whose goal was to provide safe and adequate water supply to all rural communities in Tanzania indicated an acute shortage of trained personnel of all cadres i.e. engineers, technicians, craftsmen, etc. To cater for the diverse requirements of the water sector, a Water Resources Institute (WRI) was established in 1974 as a training Unit under the Ministry of Water and Energy at the time.
In 1980 the institute’s name was changed to Rwegarulila Water Resources Institute (RWRI). This change was in honour of the late Fredrick Rwegarulila, the then Principal Secretary who played an instrumental role in establishment of the Institute and development of the Water sector in general; this decision came as a resolution during the 1980 Annual Water Engineers’ Conference (AWEC) held in Tanga.
