Tanzania does not currently have a NAP but is in the development stages of producing its first NAP.


Currently being developed.


In November 2022 UN Women reported Tanzania was developing its first National Action Plan  on Women, Peace and Security and would soon be entering the drafting phase. In East and Southern Africa, Tanzania is among the few countries that will be developing its first-ever plan inviting women to meaningfully participate in the peace process. Earlier in October 2021 a  task force for drafting the National Action Plan on women Peace and Security was established to produce a practical document with details of actions the Government will take to meet its obligations set by the UN.

Civil Society’s engagement in development of the NAP:

The 2022 International Peace Day presented a unique opportunity to bring together professionals from East and Southern African countries, the Tanzanian government and civil society representatives to share lessons learned and best practices in National Action Plan development, implementation, and reporting. The evidence suggests civil society will play a role in the development of the National Action Plan.

UN Peacekeeping Statistics:

In May 2023 according to UN data Tanzania contributed 77 military observers, experts and staff officers, and 1599 peacekeeping troops.

Women’s role in peacekeeping:

In May 2023 of the 1599 troops, 1449 were male and 150 female (9.3%). Of the 77 observers and staff officers 55 were male and 22 female (28.6%).
