（英）Project for Capacity Development for Local Government Training Phase 2
Prime Minister's Office-Regional Administration and Local Government
The Government of Tanzania (GOT) embarked on Decentralization by Devolution (D by D) in the late 1990s aiming to transfer political, financial and administrative powers to the Local Government Authorities (LGAs). To this end, the Local Government Reform Program (LGRP) started in 2000. During the first phase of the LGRP (2000–2008), GOT has achieved substantial progress in the decentralization process. Upon completion of the LGRP I, however, it was recognized that challenges still remain in the area of capacity development at the LGAs. As a consequence, the current phase of the LGRP (LGRP II) further emphasizes the importance of capacity development and training for LGA staff.
The Government of Japan (GOJ) has been supporting its Tanzanian counterpart in capacity development for improved service delivery over a decade. Among various technical assistance realized in the concerned area was a project entitled “Capacity Development for Local Government Training” (May 2008 to Dec. 2010). This technical cooperation project aimed at enhancing management capacity of the Prime Minister’s Office – Regional Administration and Local Government (PMO-RALG) as regards to LGA training provision. Along with the project implementation, PMO-RALG developed “Training Strategy for Local Government Authorities” in 2009. The Training Strategy addresses the need to establish a new training provision framework to ensure effective training for all LGAs, based on which PMO-RALG has appointed the Local Government Training Institute (LGTI) as a Lead Training Institution (LTI). Based on this new institutional arrangement, PMO-RALG transferred its functions concerning training coordination and quality assurance to LGTI in 2010. LGTI has accordingly established the Department of Coordination and Quality Assurance (DCQA) within the institute to fulfill its responsibilities as LTI for improved LGA training.
Against this background, PMO-RALG, LGTI, and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) signed an official agreement in June 2011 to commence a new project, “Capacity Development for Local Government Training Phase 2” in order to enhance capacity of LGTI to function as LTI. The Phase 2 Project was subsequently inaugurated in July 2011 in Hombolo Village, Dodoma where LGTI’s main campus is located.
*Please note that the project design was revised during the Mid Term Review in Feb 2014.
LGAs provide quality trainings (long-term and short-term) to its staffs.
Effective LGA training provision framework is established.
[Output 1] Working Group for Implementation of Training Strategy (WGITS) could effectively function as a platform to institutionalize project experience and achievement.
[Output 2] LGTI can properly coordinate with other stakeholders.
[Output 3] LGTI's quality assurance capacity is strengthened on (re) organizing existing/new practical trainings based on identified needs.
