Household surveys of communities affected by natural gas development projects provide valuable baseline data on the resulting social transformation, as expressed by local people and communities in one of Tanzania’s poorest regions.
Sustainable Cities and Communities
Data will inform long-term strategies for coexistence, planning and benefit-sharing between an emerging natural gas sector and neighbouring communities in the Mtwara region.
Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
Research gives voice to vulnerable populations in impacted areas. Findings can inform accountability mechanisms to ensure that those who have lost their farmlands and other livelihood assets to gas developments receive equitable compensation.
