According to the East African Community (EAC) Secretariat and Ministry of East African Community (MEAC) the Customs Union and Common Market Protocols of the EAC presents the people of the region with a number of benefits in terms of the eased way of conducting business, reduced tarrifs and free movement of the factors of production.

However whether or not the bene¬t are being ccrued to the people of the EAC Region can only be ascertained by undertaking regular surveys on the perception of the civic population regarding the bene¬ts of the two protocols.

The report which follows herefater represents the Tanzanian Civil Society and Civic population’s taking on the issue of bene¬ts accrued to Tanzanias from the Customs Union and Common Market protocols as was expressed in a survey undertaken by Tanzania Association of Non-Governmental Organizations (TANGO) and supported by Trade Mark East Africa Tanzania Office between May and June 2014.

Tanzanian civil society organisations (CSOs)  under the ausipies of Global Call to Action Poverty (GCAP-Tanzania) under the coordination of Tanzania Assocition of Non-goevernmental Organizations (TANGO) has added its voice to the Post 2015 Development Agenda (P2015DA) and the propose Sustaible Development (SDGs) noting that “despite the global claim that the SDGs were developed in a participaory manner the process in Tanzania was not that participatory”.

Therefore the CSOs  urged government and its global development parnters to ensure that there is public involvement in the “localization” of the (SDGs).  The CSOs also want the government to ensure that the people are involved in the design,  implementation, monitoring and evalution of the domestication and localisation of the SDGs in Tanzania because the major reason for the failure of MDGs in Tanzania was the exclusion of the public in matter relating to the MDGs.

The CSOs also noted that exclusion ofpublic should not be repeated because success of any successor framework to the MDGs will very much depend on the level of participation and capacity building of the key players at the grassroots level.

The CSOs madethis call at a consultative meeting on SDGs which was called by GCAP-Tanzania with the support of Wild Wide Fund (WWF) East African Regional office which is based in Nairobi. The consutative meeting was attended by 50 representative of thematic and generic CSOs networks from across Tanzania.
