    The Concern for Development Initiatives in Africa (ForDIA) is a Sub-regional development consulting not-for-profit organization, which facilitates people-centred development initiatives within local conditions. ForDIA undertakes the activities of research, training, advocacy and consultancies in the themes of Conflict, Peace and Security; Democracy and Governance; Gender Equality Development; and Poverty in the context of North-South Development Dialogue.
    For the last three years ForDIA has steadily grown to coordinate efforts aimed at improving transparency and good governance in Tanzania, which include coordination of the Tanzania Transparency Forum (TRAFO), and the Publish What You Pay (PWYP) Campaign, following up implementation of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) in Tanzania. The EITI sets a global standard for revenue transparency in the oil, gas, minerals, forestry and fisheries resources.
    ForDIA is also a Secretariat of the Great Lakes Peace and Security Network (PeSeNet) while it is similarly, the National Coordinating Organisation (NCO) for Civil Society Index (CSI) project.
    The CSI is a milestone and determinative action-research project which assesses the state of Civil Society in countries around the world for the purpose of creating a knowledge base and a momentum for initiatives that strengthen the Civil Society. Civil Society Organisations initiate and implement the index, which actively involves and disseminates its findings to the broad range of stakeholders across the governments, development partners, academics, and the public at large.
    The process to implement CSI project in Tanzania started in early 2008 upon ForDIA being competitively selected by CIVICUS and awarded the NCO status. So far ForDIA has gone through the first three stages of implementing CSI, namely technical training, formation of National Index Team (NIT), establishment of the National Advisory Group (NAG) and undertaking country social forces analysis consistent with civil society mapping; undergone secondary data review; and undertaken the Regional Stakeholders Consultations (RSCs)/workshops. RSCs activities were undertaken in all Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar regions in February 2010. CSI fourth stage activities known as community samples, which is basically household fieldwork surveys, are forthcoming.
