This report provides a review of one element of social protection in Tanzania. It examined, specifically, the dimension of social protection that deals with supporting household consumption/income through interventions at the level of the household and individual. This involved a review of poverty and vulnerability in Tanzania and of the expenditure and institutional arrangements of relevant programmes.

The findings must in some areas be considered provisional pointers for areas of further investigation.
