[Africa Diligence] The Strengthening Access to Justice and Human Rights Protection in Tanzania Project (2017-2021) aims at addressing challenges affecting smooth delivery of criminal justice in Tanzania and strengthening responsive and accountable human rights protection mechanisms. The Project will pursue strategic initiatives to strengthen the criminal justice system and human rights in order to provide effective, accountable and timely justice for all.
The main objectives of the project include:
These efforts have been undertaken in line with the main country’s development priorities as outlined in the Vision 2025 (mainland Tanzania), the Vision 2020 (Zanzibar), the first 2011-2015 and the second 2016-2021 National Five Year Development Plan for Tanzania (FYDP), in the ‘MKUKUTA’, the National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty, and ‘MKUZA’, as well as in the Zanzibar Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty, for 2005-2010 and 2011-2015, and the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar’s MKUZA Successor Strategy 2016-2021.
The proposed assignment is proposed in further of Output 2 Strengthening the role of national authorities and civil society in the promotion and protection of human rights and women access to justice. The current initiative shall build on the lesson learned and best of the now concluded Support for National Human Rights Priorities in Tanzania, which was implemented by the Commission for Human Rights and Good Governance (CHRAGG) from 2013-2016 with funding from UNDP. While acknowledging that plausible progress has been made in building the capacity of the main Government agencies and forging partnerships with CSOs and other stakeholders to effectively implement and monitor the NHRAP, the project final evaluation called for, among others, sustained and adequate support in reinforcing the capacity of CHRAGG to pro-actively embrace its mandate of coordinating the overall human rights agenda, country-wide. Considering the above and capitalising on the support and wiliness demonstrated by the government and people of Tanzania to improving human rights realisation and protection for all, UNDP is supporting MoCLA in developing a new five-year National Human Rights Action Plan for 2018 – 2022. The proposed NHRAP shall be critical to supporting CHRAGG to continue the progress towards entrenching a culture of human rights.
