Tanzania

Overview

Tanzania is a country with agriculture at the heart of both its economy and people’s daily lives. It is a producer of coffee, sisal, tea, and cotton, and its main food crops include maize, sorghum, millet, rice and beans.

The Agricultural Sector Development Strategy (ASDS) is a sector-wide approach first introduced in 2001 with the objective of achieving agricultural growth via transformation from subsistence to commercial agriculture. Separate to the ASDS, the government also has the Tanzania Agriculture and Food Security Investment Plan (TAFSIP), which serves as the national agricultural investment plan, developed following the signing of the CAADP Compact in 2010. TAFSIP’s stated goal is to achieve 6% annual agricultural GDP growth.
