2005 - Tanzania - Country Governance Profile
The Bank Group has become increasingly involved in the promotion of good governance in Regional Member Countries (RMCs) as part of its mandate to reduce poverty. The Bank Group adopted a governance policy in 1999 to guide its intervention in the area of governance. Both the Bank Group Vision Statement and the Strategic Plan for the period 2003-2007 emphasize good governance in RMCs as an important pillar in the fight against poverty. In order to effectively implement the Bank Group’s policy on governance, the Bank Group has launched the preparation of Country Governance Profiles (CGP) in RMCs. The CGP is intended as a tool for diagnosing the governance situation in RMCs with a view to improving the focus and effectiveness of Bank Group assistance for good governance. The CGP also aims to enrich dialogue with RMCs on key governance issues as well as to provide a valuable input into the preparation of Country Strategy Papers.
