Tanzania’s medium term development and poverty reduction goals are articulated in the “National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty” – MKUKUTA
Unlike the first PRS which focused on priority sectors only, the MKUKUTA is outcome-based which allows for a balanced focus on the contribution of all sectors and cross-cutting issues.
It is a five year strategy (2005/06 – 2009/10) that focuses on three broad clusters:
Progress in implementing MKUKUTA is reviewed in a broad-based participatory process through the MKUKUTA Monitoring System (MMS).
This is the national framework which also coordinates the Management Information System (MIS) of each sector
Each sector is required to prepare their performance report consistent with their strategic plan and budget, which ultimately feeds into the MMS (Macro level)
