Through MAFAP, FAO has developed common indicators for monitoring key commodities and public expenditure in agriculture. This helps policy makers and donors understand if policies are having a positive impact and compare results across countries and over time.

Tanzania

Since early 1990’s Tanzania has implemented far reaching macroeconomic and structural reforms which has led to substantial socio-economic development.  GDP growth per annum has almost doubled over the last decade from 4.1% in 1998 to 7.4% in 2008, with an average growth of 7% per annum. This is historically high for Tanzania and comparable to the performance of fastest growing economies in sub-Saharan Africa.  GDP growth peaked in 2004 at 7.8%, but severe and prolonged drought during 2005/06 negatively affected the economy, and the GDP has been gradually recovering to reach 7.4% in 2008.

The ASDS has identified five strategic issues:
