UNICEF Tanzania Decentralization and Local Governance Support Strategy
For Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar 2018-2021
To support LGAs’ systems and capacities in both rural and urban areas, UNICEF supported the development of a DeLoG strategy covering both Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar for the period 2018-2021.
The strategy, which was developed as a result of a situational analysis and a series of consultations, covers four main themes:
- Conducive decentralization policy and strategy,
- Citizen participation in planning and service delivery,
- Strengthened use of relevant data for LGA planning, budgeting and M&E, and
- Resource allocation for equitable service delivery.
Each theme is described in detail, and includes a summary theory of change and action plan for the first year of the strategy. The themes were selected based on government priorities for reform and capacity-building, as well as the comparative advantage of UNICEF.
