Sida has supported a district capacity building and development programme called DDP in three districts since 2002 when district profiles were prepared as baselines for a five year programme including two districts in Mara Region, Bunda and Serengeti, and one district in Mwanza Region, Ukerewe.The objective of the DDP was to support the implementation of core Tanzanian development policies like Growth and Poverty Reduction (MKUKUTA), Local Government Reform Programme (LGRP) and cross cutting concerns such as Gender, HIV/AIDS, and sustainable environmental and natural resources management in three districts in the Lake Victoria area, the latter having been a long term recipient of Swedish Development Assistance.
