PRS/MDG Programming: Gleneagles Scenario Report - December-14-09
Tanzania, like many other developing countries, is facing the twin challenges of attaining sustained high growth rates of the economy and substantial reduction in poverty. Resource gaps, (both human and financial) constraint the Government’s ability to address these challenges in a comprehensive and faster way. Tanzania subscribes to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as a compact that addresses an expanded vision of poverty reduction and pro-poor growth to improve human development. Tracking of progress on MDGs has been undertaken through Millennium Development Goals Reports (MDGRs) and costing using the modified Millennium Project Needs Assessment methodology. The objective of costing was to establish the price tag of achieving MDGs. These reports have consistently shown substantial resource gaps as challenges towards meeting the MDGs.
