Norway signs new core support agreement with LHRC
On Tuesday April 16 2019, Ambassador Elisabeth Jacobsen signed a three-year core support agreement with the Legal and Human Rights Centre (LHRC) worth USD 2.2 million to support LHRC’s Operational Plan 2019-2021, being part of the six-year strategic plan 2019-2024.
Norway is a strong supporter of human rights in Tanzania and is happy to announce our continued partnership with LHRC. LHRC plays an important role in advocating for and defending human rights in Tanzania by working towards more transparency, accountability and freedom of expression. Furthermore, Norway supports LHRC’s continued effort to improve policy and legal frameworks for specific rights for women, children and people with disabilities. Norway has been supporting LHRC core activities for more than fifteen years including a USD 5 million grant to the Centre between 2013 and 2018.
