Tanzania's Democratic Challenge and the Governance of Natural Resources
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ESTWashington, DC
In the three years of President John Magufuli’s regime, there has been unprecedented activity in the field of natural resource management.
Natural resource laws were enacted, with serious ramifications not only for the management of these resources but also on the rights and interests of the communities that depend on them for their livelihoods. In Tanzania, projects that have serious ecological and socio-economic impacts for decades to come are being planned and implemented.
Tundu Lissu, Member of Parliament for Singida-East, CHADEMA Chief Lawyer, will discuss the many implications on the Tanzanian economy and international economic relations.
