SUNY/CID Wins Contract to Continue Work in Tanzania

SUNY/CID NEWS STORIES 2006

On October 1, 2005, SUNY/CID embarked upon a four-year program to help strengthen the Parliament of Tanzania as a follow-on to the work that it began with the Parliament in 2003.

The project fosters greater cooperation among intergovernmental agencies, effective participation of Members of Parliament in the formulation of the national budget, and greater involvement with their constituencies at home.

In Tanzania, this approach has proved to be so successful that it has paved the way for further activities to be undertaken with additional resources. SUNY/CID is pleased to announce that an expansion of parliamentary activities through our existing project is to be funded by the Millennium Challenge Account Threshold Program. New and exciting activities will include a range of technical initiatives that will serve to further strengthen TanzaniA's legislature, and the nation, with particular attention paid on efforts to prevent and crackdown on corruption in the country.

The Millennium Challenge Account links greater contributions from developed nations to greater responsibility from developing nations. Development assistance may be provided to those countries that rule justly, invest in their people, and encourage economic freedom. The people of Tanzania should be proud that their country is one of the first countries in the world to share in this program.
