In highlighting the importance of the agriculture sector and to address the challenges facing it, the Tanzania Development Vision 2025 (TDV 2025) places high priority on the sector. The TDV 2025 identifies the following three priority goals in the agriculture sector: (i) ensuring basic food security; (ii) improving income levels; and (iii) increasing export earnings. The National Five Year Development Plan (2016/17 – 2020/21) also identifies the agriculture sector as a priority for the country, and in addition recognizes the need for scale up of nutrition specific interventions to prevent stunting. The specific agricultural sector strategies and programme such as the Agriculture Sector Development Strategy (ASDS); the Agricultural Sector Development Programme (ASDP II); the Tanzania national multi-sectoral nutrition action plan 2016-2021; and the Tanzania Agriculture and Food Security Investment Plan (TAFSIP), among others, also emphasise the importance of nutrition and food security.

The Bank’s Country Strategy Paper (CSP) 2016-20, is supporting the Government’s strategies to transform the economy towards inclusive and green growth. The CSP is articulated around two strategic pillars: (i) Infrastructure development and (ii) Strengthening governance and accountability.
