TRADE-OFFS BETWEEN LAND USES IN THE SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS OF TANZANIA

This is the project Under United Nation Enviromental Programme   which is conducted in Tanzania ,Dr Gody Sanga from College of Economics and Business Studies (CoEBS )of Sokoine University of Agriculture is one of the member of the project.

The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB ) AgriFood study is conducted in 4 sub catchments to inform land use policies, including agriculture and agroforestry policies, in the Southern Highlands region

  • The study is undertaken in the upper catchment areas of the Great Ruaha and Kilombero Rivers
  • This region is the headwaters for the agriculturally important Kilombero River Basin and eventually the Rufiji River Basin.
  • The Rufiji watershed is critical for Tanzania’s development plans, particularly as they relate to food security, water security, and energy production.

The project’s main objective is to mainstream the values of nature in decision-making by highlighting the several trade-offs made in land-use decisions, which are usually not captured through conventional assessments such as Strategic Impact Assessments

How to Craft a Journal Article? Workshop for Young Researchers and Post Graduate Students in Management Studies in Africa

DATE: 5th, 12th and 19th of NOVEMBER, 2021 VENUE:

HYBRID Rationale and Objectives Recently in many countries in Africa, it has become mandatory for any professionals within the academic sphere to publish articles in refereed journals to gain promotion. Similarly, many postgraduate students including master and PhD candidates are required to publish a journal article before they graduate. We understand the importance of publication but it is our considered observation that this would not be easy to many postgraduate students. Furthermore, this would contribute to the reduction of the number of postgraduate students who graduate on time as well in the future. On the same note, there are limited chances for African researchers to publish in good refereed journals globally; among the constraints, include language barriers and inadequate academic writing skills. In general, these decrease chances of sharing and disseminating knowledge generated in the Global South. To address this challenge we are proposing to conduct a workshop on academic writing skills for new academic staff and postgraduate students. Our expectation is that after training, the trainees would be empowered to develop publishable book chapters and journal articles.

Abstract

We study household consumption of various categories of processed food, includ-ing ultra-processed food and meals away from home in Tanzania. We compare peri-urban versus hinterland rural areas, and large cities versus small towns. Three sets of findings stand out. (1) Contrary to the common view in Africa that processed food is mainly an urban middle-class phenomenon, we found it has penetrated the diets of the rural areas and the rural and urban poor. In rural areas, surprisingly 60% of food consumption comes from purchases in value terms, and processed food accounts for 76% of purchases and 47% of all food consumed. For the rural poor, purchased processed food is 38% of food consumption. In urban areas processed food’s share of purchases (hence consumption) is 78%, similar for the rich and poor. (2) We found that ultra-processed food (such as sugar-sweetened beverages and cookies) and meals-away-from-home (MAFH) have emerged as important in urban as well as rural areas. As these foods tend to be high in oil, salt, and sugar, this is a health concern. The share of ultra- processed foods and MAFH is 21% in rural areas and 36% in cities albeit twice as high in large cities compared with small towns and among richer compared to poorer consumers. (3) Our regressions show the spread of processed food consumption in rural and urban areas, among the rich and poor, is driven mainly by opportunity costs of the time of women and men, and thus the pursuit of saving home-processing and cooking time, as well as food environment factors. As these drivers are long term trends this suggests processed food consumption will continue to grow.
