Agricultural Policy Conference


BACKGROUND OF
AGRICULTURAL MARKETS
DEVELOPMENT TRUST

Tanzania's economy is driven by agriculture. Eighty percent of Tanzania's poor live in rural areas. Despite agriculture being the backbone of the economy, per capita agricultural production is amongst the lowest in the world.

Tanzania's National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty (Mkukuta II) recognises the potential of agriculture and calls for transformation of the sector. The national policy, Kilimo Kwanza, defines the approach, policy instruments and strategic interventions. It aims to increase production and add value to products locally, to create more employment and substantially reduce poverty.
