The Support to Zanzibar Legal Sector Reform Program (ZLSRP) is informed by the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar’s (RGoZ) commitment to comprehensively address the challenges facing the legal sector as outlined in the main strategic documents (Vision 2020, MKUZA II, Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Strategic Plan, the Legal Sector Reform Strategy and Child Justice Reform Strategy).

The project contributes to the United Nations Development Assistance Plan (UNDAP) outcomes 1.2 ‘Select Public Sector Reforms in Zanzibar are developed and accelerated’ and Outcome 5 ensuring that the ‘justice system better protects the rights of women and children in contact/conflict with the law and is better able to respond to their needs’. In support of these strategic documents, the ZLSRP focuses on the strengthening of justice institutions and the enhancement of access to justice for all and in particular for the most vulnerable people. The project’s overarching goals are to strengthen the rule of law and to promote human rights and access to justice for the citizens of Zanzibar.  The specific objective is to support the National Legal Sector and the Child Justice Reform Programs in Zanzibar. The project expects the following results:

  • Result 1 - Legal Sector Reform Strategy developed and implemented;
  • Result 2 -Enhanced institutional and operational capacity of the justice sector to deliver services efficiently and effectively;
  • Result 3 - Strengthened legal aid mechanisms for a justice accessible to the people especially the most vulnerable.

The ZLSRP is implemented jointly by UNDP, and UNICEF and seeks to improve the quality of the administration of justice and the efficiency, affordability, and timeliness of justice service delivery. The basic principle underlining the ZLSRP is that legal sector reform is a critical foundation for the promotion of good governance and the protection of human rights and therefore a major element in achieving national economic and social development and poverty alleviation. The direct beneficiaries of ZLSRP are all the key justice sector institutions in Zanzibar, including the President Office of Constitution; Legal Affairs, Public Service, and Good Governance as Implementing Partner; the Judiciary of Zanzibar; the Office of the Attorney General; Law Review Commission and the Department of Public Prosecution as well as the broader population of Zanzibar.
