NAP Development Process
The Human Rights Action Plan (2013-2017) of the Tanzanian Government tasked the Commission for Human Rights and Good Governance (CHRAGG) with developing a National Baseline Study on Business and Human Rights and to support the development of a National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights.
National Baseline Assessment (NBA)
The National Baseline Assessment was released on 9 November 2017 and provides a comprehensive account of the status of protection of human rights with regard to business activities in Tanzania. The Baseline outlines the strengths and weaknesses in the Government’s approach to business and human rights and makes recommendations to address any gaps identified.
The Baseline was developed by CHRAGG, with technical support from the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR). The Baseline draws on extensive desktop research, including materials from, among others, the Tanzanian Legal and Human Rights Centre (LHRC), engagement and consultation with government, business and civil society stakeholders, as well as three field missions to gather case study experiences in the agricultural, mining and tourism sectors in Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar.
