Welcome to ANSAF
ANSAF (Agriculture Non-State Actors Forum) is a member–led forum mainly involving institutions of farmers’ umbrella organizations, the commercial sector, and the non-governmental organizations (NGO) sector (both Tanzanian and international) working in Tanzania. It is a forum that brings together the non-state actors to discuss and work towards solutions to improve the agriculture sector in the interests of men and women currently living in poverty. ANSAF was formed in 2006 with 8 members and currently have 60 members across the regions in Tanzania. During its initial stage it was known as Private Sector and Civil Society Agricultural Working Group (PSCS-AWG). Since its inception, the organization was set to promote learning based on practical experience from stakeholders so as to share what is and what is not working in agriculture sector. ANSAF’s image has been formed by the previous work on budget analysis as focused on the Maputo Declaration by African Union (AU) member state to commit 10% of their national budget to agriculture as one of the mechanisms to address food insecurity and poverty.
