Social Protection: Assuring a Minimum Income for the Poorest in Tanzania

"This report provides a review of one element of social protection in Tanzania. It examined, specifically, the dimension of social protection that deals with supporting household consumption/income through interventions at the level of the household and individual. This involved a review of poverty and vulnerability in Tanzania and of the expenditure and institutional arrangements of relevant programmes. It was decided that the review should prioritise breadth and as a result, it could not go into a great deal of depth. The findings must in some areas be considered provisional pointers for areas of further investigation."
