Connecting Stakeholders to Boost
Sustainable Development

Pilot4DEV joined the Consultation Event of the 30th of September on the engagement of youth in the budgeting process in Tanzania

The Consultation Event took place as part of the Pilot 4 Research and Dialogue project in Tanzania of which Pilot4DEV is a partner. It has been organized by REPOA and the partners organization (Dar Es Salaam).

 The project has two main objectives – to promote dialogue on economic, resources, policy and fiscal governance in Tanzania and to create a platform for sustainable dialogue including public and private stakeholders in different regions. Sub-objectives include the promotion and dissemination of high quality and evidence-based research on policies, resources, economic and fiscal governance, the engagement in debates among stakeholders from the public, private and civil society sectors, on economic and fiscal governance issues, especially with government stakeholders and the increasement of research capacity to expand the links, networks and connections among economic and governance research institutions in Tanzania.

So far, the project research team produced two studies: “Macroeconomic policies and Fiscal Reforms in Tanzania: Positive Developments” and “Tanzania’s Fiscal Governance, Budget Needs and Public Expenditure with and Analysis on Inequalities and Trust”. The two first policy briefs of the second studies are about the inclusion of women in the budgeting process and the engagement of youth in the budgeting process in Tanzania – which was the topic of this consultation event.
