Growth and poverty reduction: policy implications from qualitative research in Tanzania. CPRC Policy Brief 21.
Qualitative research carried out so far by CPRC in Tanzania has thrown up three major interconnected reasons why sustained growth has not benefitted more people in Tanzania. These are: (i) the absence of protection against a high level and number of risks; (ii) the increased difficulty of accumulating assets; and (iii) the deficit in rural and agricultural growth. This policy brief examines these and then derives policy implications and a short commentary on the implementation of Mkukuta II [National Strategy for Growth and Poverty Reduction].
