Assessment of Country Progress in CSO Enabling Environment in Tanzania

The current report is an assessment of the progress made by Tanzania in implementing the Busan
Commitments on creating enabling environment for Civil Society Organisations. Specifically, the
assessment analyses the extent to which the rights and freedoms affecting CSOs are protected in the
Constitution of the United Republic of Tanzania (URT), and in the basic laws and regulations; how the
rights and freedoms affecting CSOs are implemented in practice; the CSOs advocacy capacity; and the
role played by the Government of Tanzania (GoT) in establishing facilitative institutions for inclusive
decision making policy processes; and the Donor-CSOs relationships. This assessment is part of the
broader CSOs Enabling Environment study conducted by Reality of Aid (RoA) Africa Network in selected countries of Africa, Tanzania included.
