BEST - Advocacy Component

{short description of image} Business Environment Strengthening for Tanzania is a major programme to promote regulatory and other reform within Government. The Advocacy Component exists to support private sector organisations (PSOs) to engage in private public dialogue and to advocate an improved business environment in Tanzania. It is now into a second phase of support intended to last until 2013.

IGA, in partnership with Annabel Jackson Associates and Coffey International Development, is undertaking a five year longitudinal impact assessment funded by DFID. They are working with a small number of 'case study' business associations as well as regularly interviewing public officials and other stakeholders to assess the impact being achieved by business associations supported by BEST-AC. Links to public reports will be posted here when they are available.

BEST is funded by the Danish International Development Assistance (DANIDA), the Department for International Development (DFID), Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and the Royal Netherlands Embassy
