overview and role
Institutions for Inclusive Development (I4ID) programme is
a five-year project (2016-2021) funded by UKAid and IrishAid, to work with
institutions in Tanzania so that they are more inclusive and accountable, and
economic growth provides more benefits for poor people.
I4ID is applying new and innovative approaches to
facilitate solutions for Tanzanian development that benefit the largest number
of people possible – including the poor and most vulnerable in society –
through inclusive growth and better public services. The programme is designed
to address some of the fundamental systemic challenges for inclusive development
including coordination failures and weaknesses in policy formulation and administration.
We bring stakeholders together to develop an informed and shared understanding
of their collective interest, providing technical support, research, analysis,
and facilitation around issues of critical interest to the Government of
Tanzania and other stakeholders. I4ID will offer support to government, private
sector, parliamentary institutions, and civil society to engage in working
towards a more inclusive Tanzania.
Project Coordinators take responsibility for the completion
of tasks and deliverables required to support locally led development
initiatives in collaboration with strategic and implementing partners. They are

management. This is an extremely exciting opportunity for a dynamic and
