At the request of USAID Tanzania, ECODIT, (a small US company), is carrying out an assessment of USAID’s Natural Resource Management (NRM) portfolio in Tanzania. The assessment aims to;

  1. Illuminate ways in which the portfolio is making progress toward the stated purpose of improved stewardship of natural resources, and
  2. Identify the assumptions or gaps in the design and management approach

The evaluation will generate evidence for informed decision-making and learning that responds to various intended audiences with differing interests, ranging from whether the NRM portfolio is advancing the goal of Tanzania reaching middle-income status to whether activities are having the intended outcomes.

We know that there is a vibrant and knowledgeable community of practice on Tanzanian NRM. We would like to tap this collective wisdom and experience to inform the assessment.  In the following questionnaire we would like to gather your expert opinions on NRM best practices, threats to conservation, importance of coordination, economic and governance concerns, technical approaches, etc.

We greatly appreciate your input into this important Endeavour.  Please share the survey with others you think have something to contribute.

The survey is confidential, meaning that  results will be aggregated without attribution to individuals. If there is a particular quote in the survey that we would like to use in the assessment report we will contact the writer for approval. We will summarize the results and let participants know of the outcome upon USAID’s approval.
