DPG Tanzania
Strengthening Aid Effectiveness in Tanzania

Welcome to the Development Partners Group in Tanzania

Since formally established in 2004 the Development Partners Group (DPG) has been working with the Government of Tanzania and other domestic stakeholders to strengthen development partnership and effectiveness of development cooperation. DPG comprises 17 bilateral and 5 multilateral (UN counted as one) development agencies providing assistance to Tanzania.

The approach to aid management in Tanzania is guided by the Joint Assistance Strategy (JAST) and takes into account the international principles of aid effectiveness. The main focus of JAST is to promote national ownership and government leadership in development cooperation through joint actions that seeks to enhance the impact of development effectiveness.

By moving beyond information-sharing towards actively seeking harmonization and alignment of aid systems and priorities, the Development Partners (DPs) are aiming at increasing the effectiveness of development assistance in support of the Government of Tanzania’s national goals and systems. Through JAST, Development Partners hope to work with Government of Tanzania fulfill its objective of achieving sustainable development goals laid out in the National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty (MKUKUTAII/MKUZAII), the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other national policies and strategies.

We hope that through this website you will learn more about DPG in Tanzania and the milestones reached in making development assistance more effective and reflective of Tanzania’s national priorities.
