About Tanzania

Tanzania is an important partner country of VLIR-UOS. From 2003 to 2023 VLIR-UOS spent around € 25,1 million in cooperation with Tanzania, including long-term Institutional University Cooperation (IUC) Programmes with the Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA), Mzumbe University (MzU) and Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology (NM-AIST). Since September 2022, a new IUC with Ardhi University started. Multiple TEAM/SI/ITP projects are ongoing. More projects are expected to be selected during the coming years.

Tanzania is also one of our 29 scholarship countries.

Ongoing projects

Tanzania and Agenda 2030 - country reference framework

VLIR-UOS revised its country approach towards an ‘Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development’ centred approach. Moreover, VLIR-UOS wants to facilitate connections between different actors and projects present in a given country. With these objectives in mind, the Country Reference Framework (CRF) for Tanzania supports teams of academics when identifying and formulating project proposals, by providing a context analysis focused on Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development and the higher education sector in Tanzania, and by providing an overview of Belgian development actors active in Tanzania, their ongoing projects and partners, in view of exploration of opportunities for synergy and complementarity. Belgian Non-Governmental Actors involved in the geographic Joint Strategic Framework (JSF) Tanzania as well as those involved in the thematic JSF on Higher Education and Science for Sustainable Development have been included.

VLIR-UOS cooperation in Tanzania has been aligned with the Tanzanian national development plans and has mainly focused on the themes of health, environment, food security, entrepreneurship and ICT and information management. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been mainstreamed into ‘Vision 2025’, Tanzania’s long term development plan. This is in line with the objectives of VLIR-UOS on working towards Agenda 2030.
