Evaluation of Union of Tanzania Press Clubs’ (UTPC) Strategic Plan 2016–2020

Final Report


information about its relevance, performance, and challenges, contribute to reflection and learning and provide recommendations for the future operations and serve as an input to its 2021–2025 strategy. Established in 1996, UTPC provides assistance to journalists and coordinates a network of 28 local press clubs. The evaluation found that the Strategic Plan was well in line with Sweden’s overall development cooperation strategy with Tanzania. UTPC can further enhance its relevance through a revision of its thematic training focus and support tailored to individual needs. Regarding its impact, the implementation of trainings helped enhance journalistic standards. However, existing materials should be updated, and participants’ usage of the skills and knowledge gained should be followed up. Also, Tanzania’s shrinking civic space undermined UTPC’s prospects of contributing to higher-level societal changes and freedom of expression. Sustainability aspects need to be strengthened as UTPC’s work is not dependent on future programme implementation.
