Project General Description

The Institutional Support Project for Domestic Resources Mobilization and Natural Resources Governance is designed because of Tunisia's need for capacity building to fully exploit the major discoveries of natural gas resources. The proposed project is an institutional support project designed to complement ISPGG III, and develop capacity to maximise benefits from the gas sector. It aims at contributing to building the capacity of the Government to develop its large gas resources to promote inclusive economic gowth. The development of the gas sector is an important initiative in domestic resource mobilization, for which the Tanzania Revenue Authority is expected to develop the requisite capacity to respond to this challenge. In addition to this, capacity development of Tanzania Revenue Authority, through enhancement of the revenue gateway system, better forecasting and capacity building of staff, will enhance its capacity to raise and manage tax and non-tax revenues. The project has three components, namely: (i) enhancing governance in the natural resources sector (ii) enhancing domestic resources mobilization and (iii) project management.
