Capacity Development

Within the framework of Delivering as One UN in Tanzania, UNDP works closely with other UN agencies, the Government, as well as with development partners and civil society to build capacity of government to coordinate and mainstream efforts at the sector level and to reinforce implementation at the local level.

Our Goals

The overall goal of UNDP in this area is to Support government efforts to help drive the national development agenda through aligning its support specifically to the national development priorities contained in the MKUKUTA/MKUZA II. Key priority is to support government to address lack of systematic approaches to capacity development, formulation and implementation of a national capacity development strategy that is intended to address medium and long-term gaps in institutional and human resource capacity. The core capacity issues that UNDP is promoting are: leadership, institutional arrangements, knowledge and accountability. All these encompass upstream policy advice, advocacy, coordination as well as downstream interventions aimed at generating good lessons and practices to inform the national policy making process.more
