UNDP has been supporting the National Assembly (NA) of Tanzania for more than a decade achieving significant results in strengthening the capacities of the institution. However, there is still much to be done if the NA is to meet regional and international standards that have been established for democratic parliaments. Not least amongst these is the limited engagement of the citizens of Tanzania in the work of the NA.

As a response to this, the five-year project, “Legislative Support Project II” (2017-2021), is being implemented with the National Assembly of Tanzania as the key partner. Through this project, UNDP supports the NA to be more effective, transparent and inclusive in fulfilling its Constitutional mandate and operating in accordance with international good practices for democratically functioning parliaments, through 1) Increased capacity of parliamentary committees to scrutinize Bills, oversee government and engage citizens; 2) More effective NA scrutiny and oversight of government, activities, budget and expenditure; 3) Strengthened functions and capacity for representing the interests of citizens in the NA; 4) NA supported to more effectively engage in strategic leadership, transparency and external engagement. 5) Gender is mainstreamed in all functions of the National Assembly.
