Views of the People Surveys, 2007 and 2012 for the MKUKUTA Monitoring System
These surveys were designed to act as feedback mechanisms for the Government of Tanzania regarding people’s perception of change during MKUKUTA implementation. The origin of these studies can be traced to a review of the first generation of the poverty reduction strategies in 2004 when it was noted that existing feedback mechanisms for assessing views/perceptions of people on government policies and strategies especially the rural population were inadequate. Fully integrated into the Poverty Monitoring System in Tanzania, the Views of the People Surveys provided important information used to update various MKUKUTA monitoring indicators.
