The UN Country Team (UNCT) in Tanzania is supporting the Government of Tanzania to scale-up of the Tanzania Productive Social Safety Nets (PSSN) programme and strengthen coordination of social protection interventions across sectors through a Joint Programme Implemented by UNDP, UNICEF, ILO and UNFPA. Each UN Agency covers a specific area of intervention as outlined in more detail in the evaluation TOR.
The JP, which was designed, in consultation with the Ministry of Finance and the Tanzania Social Action Fund (TASAF), focuses at strengthening linkage between policy level and downstream community interventions; filling the existing gaps in the PSSN; and complementing ongoing efforts being implemented through TASAF, to ensure programme sustainability.
The support to the scale-up of the PSSN is consistent with the UN Development Assistance Programme (UNDAP) Social Protection Outcome to ensure the Government of Tanzania coordinates a multi-sectoral social protection response to the needs of the economically deprived and vulnerable groups. Furthermore, the UN support offers PSSN ways to connect international norms and standards on human rights, gender equality and environmental sustainability in its implementation.
The overall goal of the PSSN JP evaluation is to promote accountability, organizational learning, stocktaking of achievements, performance, impacts, good practices and lessons learnt from implementation towards SDGs.
The final evaluation of the PSSN Joint Programme has the following specific objectives:
Measure to what extent the joint programme has contributed to solve the needs and problems identified in the design phase
