Tanzania - Joint IDA-IMF staff advisory note on the second national strategy for growth and reduction of poverty (English)

This Joint Staff Advisory Note (JSAN) reviews Tanzania's Second National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty (NSGRP--MKUKUTA II). MKUKUTA II adopts a result-based approach focusing on three clusters: cluster one: raising economic growth for reducing income poverty; cluster two: improving the quality of life and social well-being; and cluster three: improving governance and accountability. MKUKUTA II focuses more than its predecessor on enhancing productivity and growth in order to achieve more marked success in reducing income poverty. To do this, MKUKUTA II identifies selected 'growth drivers,' such as agriculture, and outlines sectoral strategies to promote productivity and private sector activity in these areas. The strategy also calls for a shift toward a greater role of the private sector in economic growth. To that end, five overarching themes are established: strengthening and establishing well functioning institutions and markets; efficient use and development of factors of production; provision of infrastructure; ensuring good economic governance; and resource mobilization and financing. This JSAN provides the staffs' analysis and advice to strengthen MKUKUTA II to help ensure its effective implementation. Key recommendations are to expand fiscal space through improving spending efficiency and enhancing domestic revenue mobilization in line with its potential, decisive actions to improve the investment climate, a well-considered plan for addressing infrastructure gaps, better prioritization of the strategy's objectives, and better specification of costing and realistic financing.
