Tanzania - Country results brief 2017


The African Development Bank is stepping up the pace in Tanzania by focusing on the “High 5s” — five priorities that are crucial for accelerating Africa’s economic transformation: Light up and Power Africa, Feed Africa, Industrialise Africa, Integrate Africa, and Improve the Quality of Life for the People of Africa.

This Tanzania Country Results Brief demonstrates the Bank’s recent progress in moving the country toward its goal of reaching middle-income status by 2025. It also highlights the Bank’s responsiveness to Tanzania’s needs, in moving closer to the field and providing the best value for money. Today the Bank has a Tanzania portfolio of 21 operations valued at $1.8 billion, which builds on the record of development results it has achieved in Tanzania since 2006.

Light up and power Africa — About 70% of Tanzanians still live without electricity, and demand for energy is rising rapidly. Through the New Deal on Energy for Africa, the AfDB is working to unify efforts to achieve universal access to energy. The Bank has constructed 630 km of transmission and distribution lines.
