Welcome to our new website!

About Us

Policy Forum is a network of NGOs incorporated as a non-profit company under the Companies Act of 2002. Our growing membership currently includes over 50 non-governmental organizations registered in Tanzania. We are drawn together by our specific interest in influencing policy processes to enhance poverty reduction, equity and democratization.

We strive to increase informed civil society participation in decisions and actions that determine how policies affect ordinary Tanzanians, particularly the most disadvantaged. To enhance our effectiveness we have narrowed the focus of our work to 3 main activity clusters. These are Local Governance, Public Money and Active Citizensí Voice.

We are a member-led network and therefore our highest decision-making body is the General Assembly made up of all voting members of the network. Our activities are overseen by a
Steering Committee, elected by Policy Forum members to serve for a 2-year term of office and mandated to lead on the implementation of our activities. The Steering Committee manages a small Secretariat office set up to coordinate, facilitate, monitor and report on the activities of the network.
