A widely shared view among stakeholders is that in the next programming phase, the UNDP Inclusive Democratic Governance pillar should take advantage of the recent opening of thecivic space in Tanzania and focus on improving human rights and democratic governance. Itshould seek to influence the Government in complying with international human rightsconventions, including reporting obligations and follow-up, and facilitating dialogue between Government and civil society on laws that are considered restrictive and not participatory


Stakeholders also suggested that UNDP work more with civil society. As far as possible, UNDP should have more programmes at society level and more presence in the field, including 39 monitoring at field level. It should also ensure that projects are designed with sufficient involvement by communities. Based on the Leaving No-One Behind principles, UNDP should ensure that disadvantaged and marginalised people, including women, youths, persons with disabilities and persons living with HIV/AIDS are involved and targeted in all its governance interventions


The next programme should continue to work towards ensuring that women’s participation is inclusive and genuine especially with regard to decision making processes. There should be continued dedicated resources in terms of research, advocacy, developing tools and reforming legal frameworks to encourage women to grow into substantial leadership roles.


As the role of the private sector in governance has now been recognised by the Government of Tanzania and globally, UNDP should increase it engagement with this sector in its future programme, in tandem with the Government.


When other UN partners are going to be involved in UNDP governance projects, UNDP should ensure their participation in the design, implementation and monitoring of these projects at strategic level


The M&E data collection tools and reporting system has been strengthened since the Outcome MTE was conducted but UNDP should continue to refine its system in order to ensure that M&E reports are results-based rather than activity-based.
