A Call to Action

In this communiqué, the undersigned Non-State Actors (civil society,pastoralist, research, private, farmers’ unions and other stakeholders) champion a call to action and outline recommendations on livestock policy advocacy strategies that take into consideration the unique conditions and opportunities of the livestock sector development in Tanzania.

Summary

The livestock sector is an engine of economic growth in Tanzania where 50 percent of households in the country rely on some form of livestock for part, or all of their income.1
Tanzania has the third largest livestock population on the African continent after Ethiopia and Sudan and while a variety of livestock products - including livestock, meat, poultry, eggs and leather goods - are produced in Tanzania, the country continues to depend on imports to meet the growing demand.

Today, more than ever, the livestock sector warrants close consideration and attention if the country is to fully realize its potential as a driver for inclusive transformational growth. The livestock sector is seen to contribute to the Tanzania Development Vision (TDV) 2025 and a recent analysis found that the sector has contributed between 7.4% to 10% of the national GDP,2 although the sector’s development budget remains small, shrinking in recent years to 10.6 billion Tsh in 2016/17.3 Livestock is a sector that is growing and transforming rapidly and the demand for animal products and bi-products is rising, driven by higher disposable incomes of the growing middle class and increasing rates of urbanization. Its potential contribution to achieving many of the national development goals represents a unique opportunity for far-reaching transformation.

Accelerating the IFF Agenda for African Countries
Dowload the Report

Illicit financial flows (IFFs) are a large and growing problem for the African continent, with upwards of $70 billion in IFFs leaving the continent annually.1 African governments, intergovernmental organizations, industry, and civil society have come to understand the severity of the problem over the past few years.

The following list of actions are meant to address some of the first steps in addressing IFFs. These actions are foundational, involving measures that can either be undertaken more quickly and easily in some countries where some of the processes and commitments may already be underway or measures that lay the groundwork for later reforms. The result is an Accelerated IFF Agenda that governments can use as a place to begin their work to tackle IFFs in their own countries, leading to greater domestic resource mobilization and growth, resources which will be critical in making progress on the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and the African Union’s Agenda 2063, the Addis Tax Initiative, and the Africa Mining Vision.

JegaThe former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission and Pro-Chancellor of the Plateau State University, Professor Attahiru Jega, has identified the lack of focus of Nigerian leaders as a major setback to the education sector.

Professor Jega made the observation on Monday at the ongoing 2016 Nigeria Higher Education Summit in Abuja which is aimed at building an effective platform for the revitalisation of the Nigerian education system.

He believes that identifying the challenges facing the sector is a first step in the right direction in boosting the education system in Nigeria.

The academia in the Nigerian University System (NUS), business organizations and other relevant stakeholders in the education sector on Monday met to chart a course for improvement of higher education in the country.
 
Speaking at the 2016 Nigeria Higher Education Summit organised by the Committee of Vice Chancellors of Nigerian Universities, in partnership with Trust Africa, Dakar and the National Universities Commission (NUC), the academia noted that the landscape of higher education in the country, despite having some vista of hope, remained stunted and underachieving.
 
The theme of the summit was “Exploiting Diversity, Differentiation and Quality Assurance in Revitalizing the Nigerian Higher Education System.”
