    Consultant Researcher, Tanzania

    African Forum and Network on Debt and Development (AFRODAD)
    AFRODAD is a Pan-African
    organization using research and advocacy to address the debt burden and other development issues on the African continent.


    The Consultant should have skills and experience in the following areas:

    1. Policy aptitude and experience in the issues around climate change and extractive industries and policy engagement
    2. Understanding of the concept ecological debt, extractive industries and climate change.
    3. Research/communication skills and experience, with working with civil society
    4. Quantitative data analysis skills
    5. Qualitative and participatory research skills


    1. Clarify the concept of ecological debt and interrogate its relevance and applicability. How do we apply the concept of ecological debt on extractive industries and climate change?
    2. What is the ecological debt of Tanzania, and what are the consequences of this debt? Discuss the issues within an economic, environmental and human rights framework.
    a. Establish empirically the link between the African publicsÂ’ entitlement to environmental justice and the debt owed such publics by Multi National Corporations, governments and other actors within the extractive sector.
    b. Examine the relationship between aid and investment in extractive industries, and identify the power relationships between them.
    c. Link the concept of environmental space (and the encroachment thereof), ecological justice and the persistence of poverty.
    d. Discuss the relationship between Intellectual Property Rights and ecological debt.
    e. Explore if some of the external debt was created from activities that were ecologically damaging, especially related to the extractive sector and climate change.
    3. Provide a physical quantification of the ecological and social damage which can lead to a monetary valuation. Compare this figure of ecological debt to the external debt of the country.
    4. Recommend institutional, policy and regulatory means of holding polluters and other environmental rights offenders accountable.
    5. Make recommendations as to the most appropriate planning, structural and regulatory frameworks to fully benefit from Tanzanian and African resource extraction. And discuss how new accumulation of ecological debt can be avoided.
    6. Explore and recommend possibilities for compensation or reparations.
