Creating Space for Child Participation in Local Governance in Tanzania: Save the Children and Children's Councils (Research on Poverty Alleviation Brief)

This brief summarises the principal findings of a study which examined children’s councils supported by Save the Children as one avenue to promote children’s participation in local governance in Tanzania. The research found that the councils were genuine, child-led organisations that have contributed to improving local service delivery to children. However, councils are operational in a limited number of districts, and, where councils are in place, local authorities are yet to consistently involve them in their decision-making processes.
