REPOA was part of the Joint Technical Committee responsible for drafting the second national Five-Year Development Plan 2016/172020/21 (FYDP II), which was launched on 7 June 2016 by the Minister of Finance and Planning in Dodoma. In collaboration with the Supporting Economic Transformation (SET) Programme of the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), one of the leading independent think tanks on international development and humanitarian issues in the United Kingdom, REPOA conducted a study that was among the key inputs to FYDP II.
Recommendations from the study Industrial Productivity, Health Sector Performance and Policy Synergies for Inclusive Growth were also adopted into the plan, particularly with respect to domestic manufacturing of basic drugs and medical supplies. In addition, REPOA undertook an analytical assessment of social protection interventions in Tanzania as a further input into the plan.
