Tanzania

In late 2016, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the end of term report for Tanzania's second action plan . The report evaluates the full action plan implementation period of 1 July 2014 through 30 June 2016. 

Ngunga Greyson Tepani, an independent researcher wrote this report. His findings are summarized below: 

Tanzania's second action plan focused on improving public access to information in important sectors including land and extractives. The Access to Information Act was enacted shortly after the action plan ended, and it represents a major step forward for increasing government transparency. Although the commitments were ambitious and highly relevant to opening government, successful implementation was limited. Moving forward, the government could focus on improving institutional capacity to carry out commitments.

The version of the report for public comment is available in English below. You can comment here. A Kiswahili version of the report will be available shortly.
