HakiRasilimali and MS-TCDC (conveners) have co-created a course that will result in the ability of extractive host communities to push for demand side driven advocacy agendas hence influencing sector Policies and Practices. A team of subject experts were involved in designing the draft course curriculum and modules, which was later
validated by key stakeholders and trainers.
HakiRasilimali is a platform of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) incorporated as a Non-Governmental Organisation, working on strategic issues around minerals, oil and gas extraction in Tanzania.
The coalition emerged from an online “Knowledge Community of Practitioners” in the extractive industries in 2010 to its current status as a joint learning and advocacy platform. The group started engaging in extractive advocacy in an ad-hoc manner, albeit some successes. Taking into account the lessons learnt since 2010, the group envisages to utilize the available potential to become more effective in influencing extractive industries related policies, laws and practices within the country; by adopting a more strategic and proactive approach.
