Co-Chairs’ Summary: Land Use Dialogue (LUD) in Tanzania, First Meeting

The Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania (SAGCOT) has been established by the Tanzanian government to: support the agriculture development; identify and catalyze new public and private sector funding to stimulate agribusiness development and increase smallholder participation in commercial agriculture; and to establish coordinated approaches between the government, private sector, development partners and broader civil society. This requires a clear set of structures, policies, legislations and processes between the government, private sector and development partners around a programme of investment and policy reform. As a public-private partnership, the SAGCOT Programme operates within the existing frameworks with an overarching vision of enabling the development of a profitable, socially-responsible and environmentally-sensitive agricultural sector.
