Poverty Reduction Strategies - MKUKUTA I & II and MKUZA I & II

One of the key indicators of development effectiveness is the alignment of aid flows with national priorities and strategies. Tanzania developed its first Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper in the late 1990s, covering the period 1999/2000 to 2002-03, followed by the National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty (NSGRP), known as the MKUKUTA (2005/06-2010/11) for Mainland and MKUZA (2006/07-2010/11) on Zanzibar.

The third generation poverty reduction strategy, MKUKUTA II and MKUZA II both covered the period of 2010/11 to 2014/15 and represents the medium-term objective for Mainland Tanzania and Zanzibar.
