Millennium Challenge Account - Tanzania

Goals and Objectives Print

Overall Programme Goal
The overall goal of the Programmme is to stimulate broad based economic growth, enhance income earnings of households, and raise quality of life and social well being in programme areas through improvement of transport, energy and water supply infrastructure.
The Programme compliments initiatives addressing critical impediment for pro- poor growth and reduction of poverty in areas with high potential for growth. The primary focus of the programme is on infrastructure given its relative importance in mitigating supply side constraints, accelerating growth and reducing income poverty in Tanzania

Objectives

Given the above overall goal, the MCA-T programme has the following three objectives:-

  • To expand and strengthen transport infrastructure so as to stimulate economic activities in rich agricultural areas, improve access to basic services and enhance exploitation of tourism potential in key tourist destinations in Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar.

Interventions under this objective are expected to result in the following outputs and outcomes:

  1. Increased incomes of households in potentially rich but inadequately exploited agricultural areas;
  2. Reduced proportion of the population below the poverty line in the programme areas;
  3. Improved access and delivery of social services; and
  4. Increased contribution of the tourism sector to rural growth and the national gross domestic product (GDP).
  • To improve water infrastructure networks so as to ensure adequate availability of clean and safe water for both domestic and the productive areas in specific urban and rural areas of Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar.

Interventions under this objective are expected to result in the following outputs and outcomes:

  1. Reduced time spent by women and children to collect water in rural areas with severe water shortage;
  2. Reduced water borne diseases in both urban and rural areas with most critical clean water supply problems; and
  3. Increased and sustained supply of water for businesses and investments in key sectors.
  • To increase the capacity of supplying power to consumers in both rural and urban areas through improvement of the energy infrastructure (generation, transmission and distribution systems) so as to facilitate rapid socio-economic development in Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar.
Interventions under this objective are expected to result in the following outputs and outcomes:
  1. Increased proportion of the population in urban and rural areas with reliable supply of electricity;
  2. Increased investments and economic activities as a result of regular, reliable and accessible energy; and
  3. Improved social well being of communities living in project areas.
