New Partnerships for Sustainability in Tanzania Cancelled


Event Description

NEPSUS is is a collaborative research and capacity building project between the Centre for Business and Development Studies at Copenhagen Business School and the Department of Geography, University of Dar es Salaam, funded by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


Introduction

New and more complex partnerships are emerging to address the sustainability of natural resource use in developing countries. These partnerships variously link donors, governments, community-based organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), business, consultants, certification agencies and other intermediaries. High expectations and many resources have been invested in these initiatives. Yet, we still do not know whether more sophisticated organizational structures, more stakeholders involved, denser social networks and more advanced participatory processes have delivered better sustainability outcomes, and if so, in what sectors and under what circumstances.

To fill this gap, the 5-year research project New Partnerships for Sustainability (NEPSUS) assembled a multidisciplinary team to analyze sustainability partnerships in three key natural resource sectors in Tanzania: forestry, wildlife and coastal resources. This conference provides the opportunity to discuss the key results of this project with relevant stakeholders.

NEPSUS assessed whether co-management with local communities and private and civil society actors, and putatively more participatory processes in the governance of natural resources, result in more equitable and sustainable livelihoods and environmental outcomes. NEPSUS compared these ‘more complex’ partnerships to relatively ‘simpler’, more traditional top-down and centralized management systems and to instances where sustainability partnerships are not in place. The project provides within-sector analyses that are cognizant of historical, location and resource-specific issues, which can be used as input to resource-specific policy and partnership design. It also offers comparison across the three different sectors – in view of identifying possible common experiences and lessons that can be applied to natural resource governance more broadly.
