This report builds on the findings from PHDR 2009 and, whenever possible, uses new data to update progress and trends

Using the nationally agreed indicatorsfor MKUKUTA I as the framework for the analysis and covering the period from 2001 to 2011, the report aims to critically assess the achievements to date, discuss the merits of policies and programmes implemented, and identify policy actions needed to better align national efforts towards the realisation of MKUKUTA’s goals.

In addition to the status chapter, this year’s report explores the interplay between economic growth, productive employment and poverty reduction to identify policy options that can make future growth in Tanzania more inclusive and pro-poor. The report argues that managing structural changes, realising productivity gains by investing more in human capital, and creating an enabling business environment are key actions for the Government of Tanzania to create decent, productive jobs and achieve inclusive growth. In turn, the reconfiguration of the economy towards inclusive growth with expanded private sector employment and productivity can bring about sustainable cuts in income poverty and promote broad-based human development in the country.
