CSOs seek coherent voice on Draft Five-Year Development Plan

Members of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in the country have called upon one another to come up with burning issues that could be included or rectified in the proposed 2016/17-2020/21 Tanzania Five Year National Development Plan.

The initiative was reached at a one-day national CSO consultative forum held in in Dar es Salaam to validate the proposed 2016/17-2020/21 Tanzania National Five Year Development Plan. The forum was organized by FCS to enable the sector keep pace with other key stakeholders including the private sector, academicians, and researchers whose views have been forthcoming.

Providing a way forward, Mr. Irenei Kiria, the Executive Director of Sikika, a CSO focused on advocacy on health issues, said that each sector-specific CSO should be proactive and table core issues that are vital to enrich the draft Five-Year National Development Plan.

For his part, Mr. Edward Mbogo from the NGO Network for Dodoma (NGONEDO) said: “There is no depth of information pertaining to some sectors when you look at the Five-Year Development Plan. Hence, this platform should enable us all in the civil society sector to provide workable and alternatives issues that we deem fit.”

Mr. Kaganzi Rutachwamagyo from Inclusive Development Promoters and Consultants (IDPC) said the proposed Development Plan still shows little inclusion of special groups, especially on their social economic empowerment and other support services. He then proposed for the change of modalities.
