The United Republic of Tanzania has an agriculture-based economy with significant rural-urban and regional socio-economic disparities. The performance of the country’s agricultural sector is critical for poverty reduction and food security. Aiming to further develop the agricultural sector, the Tanzanian government launched the Expanding Rice Production Project (ERPP) with support from the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP).
As one of the civil society members of the GAFSP Steering Committee and an adviser to the ERPP, ActionAid commissioned this study to showcase the successes and lessons learned from the implementation of the project, focusing on small-scale producers, women producers, and civil society organizations, as well as communities’ resilience to climate change.
