“Harmonizing the Tanzanian APRM National Plan of Action (NPoA) with the existing development strategies and Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF)”
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 to Wednesday, September 26, 2012
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

The Governance and Public Administration Division (GPAD) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Regional Centre for Eastern and Southern Africa in close collaboration with the Tanzanian APRM authorities (NGC and National Focal Point) organized a capacity building mission to provide necessary information, tools and best practices to national authorities in order to facilitate the integration of Tanzania APRM-National Plan of Action into existing National development plans, such as the MKUKUTA II, within the context of MTEF, through peer learning and best practices case studies.

The main objective of the workshop was to prepare Tanzanians to ensure the development, implementation and monitoring of a coherent NPoA through the existing national development strategies (Five Year Development Plan, MKUKUTA II and MKUZA II and Vision 2025) within the context of MTEF, through peer-learning and best practices.

The workshop brought together about 75 participants of main stakeholders, such as Civil Servants, Members of the National Governing Council, CSOs and Private sector.

The workshop provided a real opportunity for Tanzanian civil servants as well as civil society representatives to learn from the experiences of their peers, address the key challenges and suggest concrete tools and actions which will make their NPoA a credible and operational document for national socio-economic development processes and mechanisms.

At the end of the workshop, the practitioners in Tanzania acquired enough technical knowledge to effectively implement and monitor its NPoA and mobilize adequate funds through its MTEF. According to the participants, the meeting achieved its objectives and the expectations of the APRM team in Tanzania were met.
