Enhancing capacity for development results and effectiveness

 

THE ISSUE
Tanzania aspires to become a middle-income country by 2025. Since 2007, Tanzania achieved impressive GDP growth rates, averaging nearly 7 percent annually, and attracted substantial foreign direct investment. Despite the impressive growth, 43.5 percent of the population is still living on less than $1.25 per day and there are significant inequalities between the rural and urban poor, with 33.4 per cent of the rural population living in poverty compared to 4 per cent in Dar es Salaam and 21.5 percent in other urban areas.

The development challenge the project seeks to address is the inadequate capacity at the national and sub-national levels to plan, monitor, evaluate and report on the implementation and the financing of the national, regional, and global development agendas, such as Mkzua III, the Five-Year Development Plan II and the Agenda 2030.

THE RESPONSE
The purpose of this program is to offer integrated support to the Ministry of Finance and Planning in both Mainland and Zanzibar to lead the planning, budgeting and reporting functions. In the long run, the Government will have the necessary policies and tools to take full advantage of a changing aid environment to generate domestic revenues and leverage alternative sources of development financing. The project has three components that will be addressed. All components are well inter-linked and reinforce each other.

  1. Policy formulation and analysis, and monitoring, evaluating and reporting on SDGs, and the national and regional development agenda.
  2. Development effectiveness through aid coordination and mobilization of new development finance (including donor coordination). Moving to the broader issue of expanding financing options, Tanzania’s improved economic performance and higher income are opening up a larger set of financing opportunities.
  3. Data systems enhancement including reporting and use and how Tanzania will leverage big data and embrace the data revolution to enhance evidence based planning, informed policy making, monitoring and evaluation systems.
