Abstract

A dialogue approach was utilized using the River Basin Game (RBG), a tool that aids decision-making process. The aim was to assess effectiveness of RBG in facilitating Equitable Allocation of Water (EAW) by comparing communities with and those without RBG. Structured questionnaire was adopted, and data analysed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS), Cross tabulation designs and test statistics. Key findings indicated that communities with RBG had implemented 66.6% of strategy to improve local water management institutions. However, despite significant differences in improving intakes (P<0.01), and reduction in number of Livestock (P=0.04) there was no significant difference in implementing strategies on improving performance of infrastructure and water saving for EAW. RBG was effective in creating awareness and improving local water management institutions. There is a need to intensify use of RBG and explore possibilities of promoting it for sustainable management of river water resources in small river basins particularly in developing countries like Tanzanania.
