The overall goal of the Tanzania Agreement at government level is to enhance the quality of higher education and research in Tanzania in order to contribute to poverty reduction in the country.
University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM) is supported with NOK 15 millions annually under the Tanzania Agreement (PITRO III). The agreement supports development and running of academic programmes, staff development, infrastructure and the administration of the institution.
The agreement covers important academic fields for poverty reduction such as agriculture and resource management, education, economic development and good governance. The main activities are knowledge production and management, dissemination of research findings and capacity building.
The University of Oslo (UiO) is the Norwegian partner institution to the University of Dar es Salaam. The institution annually receives NOK 3,5 millions for cooperation within all of the above mentioned fields. The Tanzania Agreement is not open to applicants outside the cooperation agreement between UiO and UDSM.
Norad and SIU has an agreement for the administration of the Tanzania Agreement for the period 2009- 2012. Higher education and research in Tanzania are also supported through other programmes such as the NUFU programme, The Tanzania – Norway NUFU Programme and the NOMA programme.
