The Tanzania SERA Policy Project assisted both the Government of the Republic of Tanzania (GoT) and the private sector to enable a broad‐based, sustainable transformation of the agricultural sector through policy reform. The vision for this project was twofold: to improve the policy and regulatory environment for agriculture growth and to build a group of public sector institutions, advocacy organizations, and individuals capable of performing rigorous policy analysis and advocating for policy reform.


  • Working closely with other donors in the country, the SERA project is contributing analysis that will help inform the Government of Tanzania’s land policy, particularly the land for equity model.
  • This analysis is to support the implementation of land policies that protect smallholder rights while also enabling domestic and foreign investment under Government agricultural initiatives such as the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania (SAGCOT).
