The United Nations (UN) will set aside sum of US$ 777 million (Tsh1.2tn) to implement Tanzania's second phase of the national strategy for growth and poverty reduction (MKUKUTA II) and the Zanzibar Strategy for growth and poverty reduction (MKUZA II).

According to the UN Development Assistance Plan (UNDAP), the fund will be used during 2011-2015.

Mr George Otoo, the UN Resident Coordinator and Operations Advisor told East African Business Week in Dar es Salaam that the $777 million will see 10 priority sectors, including refugees, emergencies, governance, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), social protection, HIV/AIDS, education, health and nutrition, environment and economic growth.

"Two more cross-cutting working groups on Gender and Human rights are added because all UN programmes incorporate human rights based approaches and gender issues," said Mr. Otoo

"We believe that the participation of the 20 UN Agencies in Tanzania for the four years period will provides a different approach in a way to support the government's effort to nourish the economy with a view to change the lives of Tanzanians," Mr Otoo added. Participation of UN agencies will provides a different approach to the way the UN supports the government's efforts for managing the economy.

"It reduces duplication in planning requirements for UN agencies and partners, ensures consistency and provides a more collective and coherent strategic response by the UN system to the national priorities, as articulated in MKUKUTA II and MKUZA II, covering the period 2011-2015," he said.

Further he said that the UNDAP sums up the entire range of activities supported by the UN System in Tanzania whereby it reflects inputs from representatives of the Tanzania Government which include resident and non-resident agencies, civil society and development partners. The UNDAP programming approach and methodology was designed bearing in mind the lessons learned from the previous UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) cycle which was from 2007-2011, the official said. He added that the plan is focusing on results and accountability in which all UN programmes will be reviewed annually basing on performance fund allocations.

According to the Government of Tanzania, it is determined to expand fiscal space for financing MKUKUTA investments by improving domestic revenue performance, efficiency in expenditure management as well as increased foreign aid in order to move forward.
