10th Annual Agricultural Policy Conference (AAPC): A Decade of Impactful Policy Reforms: Driving Resilient, Inclusive and Sustainable Food Systems

Over the past decade, Tanzania has undergone transformative changes in its agricultural landscape through a series of impactful policy reforms. These reforms have played a pivotal role in fostering resilience, inclusivity, and sustainability within the country’s food systems. The crop and livestock subsectors have witnessed reforms including reviewed policies and regulatory frameworks through streamlined and rationalized licenses, taxes, charges, fees, and levies to improve the business environment for the private sector.

The AAPC brought together participants from academia, the private sector, research institutions, policy-making institutions, advocacy groups, and development practitioners from Tanzania and beyond. The Conference provided an opportunity to assess progress in implementing policy reforms under the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) framework of the New Alliance on Food Security and Nutrition.
