This month, the fieldwork for Understanding the resource curse: A survey experiment in Tanzania is in progress in Mtwara, Lindi and Dar es Salaam.
From Monday 20 July, 10 enumerators and 2 team leaders plus field manager Cornel Jahari will be collecting household data in the three regions. Before going to the field, the enumerators had 2 days of training, including a research ethics lecture given by Blandina Kilama.
The study is part of the “Tanzania as a Future Petro-State Programme” (Component 3 “Revenue and Expenditure Management”). In addition to programme managers Donald Mmari and Odd-Helge Fjeldstad, the study involves Bertil Tungodden, Alexander Cappelen and Ingrid Hoem Sjursen from the Norwegian school of Economics.
