The National Post-2015 Consultations Report- Localizing the AgendaMay 15, 2013
Tanzania completed its national post-2015 report in May 2013 after a very broad consultative process. The report comprises of key consultations across several groups in the country, including public and private sector, higher learning institutions, women, youth, and children.
The broad message of the consultations is that the MDGs are still relevant as there is an unfinished business, but there is a need to go beyond MDGs to take into account new and emerging issues and aspirations.
The Government of Tanzania also completed a summarized report that was submitted to UNDG as one of the pilot face-to-face consultation countries. There is consensus to avoid a “one size fits all” approach, perhaps with separate targets at global, regional and national level that could provide room for an effective and sustainable development agenda.
The ten key goals to be considered for the Post 2015 Development Agenda from Tanzania consultations are:
- Eradicate extreme poverty, hunger and inequality
- Achieve decent and productive employment
- Ensure quality service delivery
- Eliminate Gender inequality
- Combat diseases
- Reduce child and maternal mortality
- Promote Sustainable development
- Improve governance
- Enhancing effective development cooperation
- Promoting peace and security
UNDP Tanzania supported the national consultations which were officially launched by the Chief Secretary from the President’s Office. The process itself was spearheaded by the President’s Office Planning Commission and the Ministry of Finance.
