Gender and decentralisation in Tanzania
This project studies cooperation and coordination on gender issues at district level in Tanzania in cooperation with PMO-RALG (Prime Minister's Office Regional Administration and Local Government).
Maternal health is used as an entry point, and the project organises workshops where representatives from districts with high mortality rate meet representatives of districts with low mortality rate to learn good practices. The project seeks to contribute to the following:
- highlight maternal health as a public problem
- strengthen cooperation between female councillors, women's organisations and women in administration at district level
- strengthen cooperation between NGO's, the private sector, administration and elected representatives at the local level
- create greater demand for resources for "women's issues" at district level
- strengthen decentralisation by devolution (D-by-D)
