Civil Society Participation in the Implementation Beijing Platform of Action (Bpfa)

Tanzania Gender Networking Programme (TGNP) is a gender activist NGO that work for gender equality, and equity, women's empowerment and social transformation at all levels. In recognition of the vital role played by TGNP, the Ministry of Community Development Gender and Children (MCDGC) through the support of IDOS-Italy has been commissioning TGNP to conduct an assessment and documentation research of civil society organizations participation in the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPA).

In 2000 TGNP facilitated the first 5 years of the implementation of BPA by the CSOs mainly based in Dar es Salaam. The outcome of this first 5 years’ assessment was a Newsletter called “Beijing + 5” wherein the NGOs’ implemented activities where documented.
