Uongozi Institute, II phase


The Institute of African Leadership for Sustainable Development (also known as Uongozi Institute) was founded in 2010 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The Institute represents a new strategic cooperation between Finland and Tanzania. The Institute´s starting point is to support Tanzania´s leadership capacity to meet the current national as well as global challenges, especially, concerning sustainable development, sustainable management of natural resources, international trade matters and good governance. The Institute offers management training for leaders, which will be extended later on to reach other sectors of society as well as other African countries. It aims at wide networking with various stakeholders and organizes international events, seminars and training sessions. Cooperation with the Institute is seen as an opportunity to increase the impact of Finland´s development policy and country strategy in Tanzania’s societal development as well as to build new types of partnerships in Finland-Tanzania cooperation.
