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.
REPOA’s 20th Annual Research Workshop (ARW) was held on 25th and 26th March 2015 and the theme for this year was Harnessing Natural Resources for Socioeconomic Transformation.
Objective of this workshop:
To address the role of natural resources in bringing about socioeconomic transformation, and to promote policy dialogue based on evidence from research on matters related to the management of natural resources and transformation of the economy to achieve inclusive development. Inclusive development is attained only if the majority of the present and future generations of citizens benefit from economic growth.
Researchers from REPOA, CMI and the National Bureau of Statistics who are team members of the research programme on Tanzania as a Future Petro-State presented their work during the workshop.
This website and the data portal were launched during the workshop. The data portal provides useful tool for analysing information on Tanzania.
The guest of honour Hon. Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda gave an opening speech
