Tanzania - Country Assistance Strategy (English)

This Country Assistance Strategy (CAS) builds on government reforms to improve economic management, raise revenues, contain domestic borrowing, and increase public savings, as well as to advance liberalization policies and structural reforms. The principal goal of the present CAS is to help the government resume progress made on poverty reduction in the late 1980s. Specifically, this CAS focuses on improving fiscal management, urban infrastructure, and public administration; reducing the size of the civil service and the military, and otherwise improving governance; raising agricultural productivity and providing economic services for small farmers; accelerating public enterprise divestiture and strengthening the environment for private sector growth; facilitating rapid and sustained improvements in the social services by decentralizing, mobilizing local resources, and rationalizing expenditures, by emphasizing preventive medicine and primary health care, and by introducing gender-sensitive policies; and protecting environmental quality. Lessons learned from past programs include: pay adequate attention to reforming public institutions and to helping build market economy skills; collaborate more with the government and other donors to reduce the number of overlapping projects in the portfolio and to focus on the core activities; and adequately involve nongovernmental and local organizations and build institutions to stimulate decentralization and fortify fiscal management.
