ICNL’s resources and information on Tanzania.
ICNL is currently implementing a multi-year program in Tanzania to strengthen civil society’s ability to successfully advocate for an improved legal environment that expands operating space for civil society at local, national, and regional levels. We have analyzed a number of restrictive laws that impact these fundamental freedoms, including amendments to the Statistics Act, the Online Content Regulations, the NGO Regulations, and the Written Laws (Miscellaneous Amendments) (No.3) Act, which introduces restrictive amendments to several laws, including the NGO Act, the Societies Act, the Companies Act and the Films and Stage Plays Act. ICNL is supporting CSOs to develop legal knowledge and advocacy capacity and encourages collaboration between media and civil society.
Civil Society Organization Sustainability Index
The index, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development for twenty years, documents the development of civil society in seventy-one countries around the world, including Tanzania. ICNL and FHI 360 work with local partners to produce the index annually.
