This policy brief highlights some key aspects of institutional and legal frameworks guiding the central-local relations in Tanzania Mainland. The past decades have seen a major set of initiatives by the central government to reform and modernize its local governments. Although there are specific policy and legal reforms, there has been a strong trend towards recentralization of powers.
The findings reported in this brief were collected from a critical review of the literature including various government reports, policies, regulations, laws and other secondary data, along with interviews with sectoral ministries (MDAs) responsible for key social and economic services and officers from the Local
Government Authorities (LGAs), the Regional Secretariats (RS). In-depth fieldwork was carried out in Kilimanjaro and Njombe Regions in 2017. The goal of the in-depth research on the sampled two regions in Tanzania was not to construct a representative picture of institutional and legal analysis of D-by-D in Tanzania but to acquire a better understanding of the way different factors result in specific relations and practices. The brief also draws some ideas from other studies undertaken on the subject matter pertaining to decentralization by devolution in Tanzania.
