GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT WORKING GROUP
The UNGC framework is conceptually and practically very new to Tanzania. It is in this light that the formation of multiple working groups is being pursued, to discuss relevant issues pertinent to anti-corruption, the environment, labour, human rights, and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, in a Tanzanian context. The composition of the working group will include key actors from civil society and the private sector. Each working group will hold dedicated discussions on a specific subject matter.
Members will seek to establish an evolving understanding of the broad range of issues relevant to the UNGC framework, and work of the UNGC Local Network in Tanzania. Feedback resulting from the discussions will be noted in the form of action points, and be taken into consideration to direct the local networks activities and interventions.
