This paper examines the United Republic of Tanzania’s Fifth Review Under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility. Economic growth, inflation, and the external position have been evolving in a manner broadly consistent with program assumptions. For the medium term, challenges center on mobilization and efficient use of public resources, managing liquidity pressures from high aid inflows, and facilitation of private sector-led growth, while maintaining a sound macroeconomic framework. The government is actively considering measures to address the crisis situation in the energy sector.

This paper describes the need to broaden the agenda for poverty reduction. The broadening of the agenda follows from a growing understanding that poverty is more than low income, a lack of education, and poor health. The poor are frequently powerless to influence the social and economic factors that determine their well being. The paper highlights that a broader definition of poverty requires a broader set of actions to fight it and increases the challenge of measuring poverty and comparing achievement across countries and over time.
