REPOA, in collaboration with Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI), invites members of civil society organizations, policy-makers and other extractive industry stakeholders in Tanzania to a new training, “How can Tanzania Best Harness Natural Resources for the Realization of its Development Goals?”

The hands-on “learning from practice” five-day workshop focuses on building the understanding of the institutions (policies, laws and regulations, governance frameworks and oversight institutions) that underpin the governance and development of the extractives sector in line with country’s development goals. The training aims to improve participants’ knowledge not only of policy options and tools to achieve these goals, but also the inherent challenges and opportunities.

  • Previous knowledge and understating of natural resource governance
  • Current engagement in the extractive sector in the country
