The workshop on the 'Validation for Tanzania Country Profile' held on the 16th October 2012 was officiated by Dr. Hoseana Boleha Lunogelo (ESRF, Executive Director). In his opening remarks, Dr. H. B. Lunogelo (ESRF, Executive Director) pointed out that "At the national (Tanzania) level, a comprehensive Capacity Development Strategic Framework does not exist". He noted however, "There are several CD development initiatives underway and so, the coming of African Union/NEPAD Capacity Development Strategic Framework (CDSF) is expected to catalyze and assist in strengthening these efforts".

This workshop was attended by an array of participants ranging from key ministry and government department(s) personnel to key NGO, academic, and civil society members. The workshop was also graced by the brief presence of the UNDP Tanzania Country Director Mr. Phillippe Poinsot.
