Country Programme - United Republic of Tanzania

This Country Programme has been modified and extended in time until 30 June 2011 as per Budget revision 5 (see below).

This intervention is WFP Tanzania’s second country programme. It builds on the achievements of the current country programme for 2002 to 2006, drawing on the recommendations of evaluations and the preliminary results of a comprehensive food security and vulnerability analysis. It has been designed with guidance from the Country Programme Steering Committee, chaired by the Director of the Disaster Management Department in the Prime Minister’s Office, in collaboration with the rest of the United Nations Country Team.

This country programme will contribute towards the Millennium Development Goals related to eradicating extreme hunger and poverty, achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality, reducing child mortality, improving maternal health, and combating HIV/AIDS.

It was designed under the framework of Tanzania’s National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty, responds to the United Nations Development Assistance Framework and is in line with WFP’s Strategic Plan for 2006 to 2009.

The country programme has four components: 

  • support to primary education; 
  • support to HIV/AIDS-affected households; 
  • food for asset creation;
  • supplementary feeding to vulnerable children and lactating and pregnant women.

The country programme will assist a total of 874,000 beneficiaries over four years. The total food requirement is 69,732 mt, at a food cost of US$21.2 million and a total cost of US$40.0 million.
