EU and Concern Tanzania join forces to maximise rural communities’
The European Commission (EC) has provided a major three-year grant (value 1.35 billion shillings) to support Concern Tanzania's efforts to reducing rural poverty in Tanzania under its “Integrated Livelihoods Programme”. The funds will aim to contribute to improved livelihoods and empowerment of marginal farmers in nine districts1, spread over four regions in Tanzania.
The programme will enhance food security and improve access to agricultural services and inputs; improve agricultural practices; and improve access to market information so farmers can sell their produce. Women and other marginal groups will be empowered and effectively involved in matters that affect their livelihoods.
The programme will work with specific local government departments and civil society organisations to support capacity building activities. It will provide development initiatives with and for the extremely poor population, and work towards the creation of a suitable environment to encourage where possible, private and public investment in agriculture. It will guide target communities to understand how to access basic services and take control of resources to improve their livelihoods in a sustainable manner.
The programme will focus on the extremely poor and most vulnerable households and build on their existing capacities/strengths. It will ensure that women and other vulnerable groups such as people living with HIV/AIDS, chronically sick people, elderly people, disabled people, children, and young people participate fully in all aspects of the project, particularly in terms of problem solving and decision making.
The action will promote interaction between state and non-state actors. It will work with non-state actors/civil society organisations (community-based organisations, farmers’ associations, self-help groups and local NGOs among others). These non-state actors will be supported through capacity building initiatives to understand the roles and responsibilities of the decentralised government structures.
They will be empowered to participate in development planning and decision making processes at different levels ensuring that the public needs are prioritised and necessary resources allocated accordingly. Non-state actors will also play key role in the monitoring and evaluation of development initiatives.
These activities, which are already underway, will contribute to the achievement of Millennium Development Goal 1 “to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger”.
Concern Tanzania has recently undertaken its major baseline survey to provide a detailed picture of the target population situation in relation to objectives and indicators. The survey comprised 57 questions relating to poverty, food insecurity, land tenure, agricultural practices, household practices, rights awareness, gender awareness, communication etc, against which Concern Tanzania can measure progress.
There were 400 respondents in all 175 villages, randomly/proportionally selected and categorised into four wealth bands. The methodology was face-to-face discussions and focus groups.
