In light of the 50 years of good results and the great need for continued support, Denmark will continue to be a strong and engaged partner to Tanzania. This country strategy paper presents the Danish Government’s view of the current and emerging challenges and opportunities in Tanzania, as well as strategic objectives for the continued partnership and selected focus areas of cooperation.
The overall vision for the future partnership with Tanzania is to enable all Tanzanians to take an active part in the country’s development and to ensure a continuation of its long history of peaceful coexistence, democracy and development. With this overall objective, the three main strategic objectives of Denmark’s cooperation with Tanzania are to assist and promote the Tanzanian government’s efforts to:
1. reduce poverty and inequality and to ensure equal access of quality social services,
2. promote inclusive green growth and employment, and
3. strengthen democracy, good governance, rule of law and respect for all human rights.
In order to achieve these strategic objectives, special attention will be given to reaching tangible results within the following focus areas:
a. the health sector,
b. the agricultural sector,
c. the demand to ensure good governance and human rights for all,
d. regional peace and stability.
Development cooperation will continue to be a major element of the partnership, but Danish development assistance must increasingly play a catalytic role in promoting the necessary changes and progress within key areas and in leveraging other forms of public and private support and cooperation. In addition, the Danish-Tanzanian partnership will be strengthened in other areas, notably within commercial relations and political cooperation, both regionally and globally.
