RSK Tanzania teams conduct a multitude of social assessments, including project evaluations, baseline surveys, socio-economic assessments, stakeholder mapping and analysis, corporate social investment and project and programme design on behalf of clients, and organisational capability assessments of community-based organisations and national nongovernmental organisations (NGO).

We have a large network of enumerators for various types of baseline surveys. Our research-focused specialists analyse baseline data to determine social and socio-economic conditions through desktop reviews, household surveys, field studies, focus-group discussions and other stakeholder consultations methods. The accumulated data provide informed analyses for implementing short- and long-term mitigation plans. We develop impact mitigation strategies to minimise potential social, socio-economic and cultural changes in the lives of project-affected communities. All assessments are undertaken in compliance with regulatory and international standards. We have also conducted gender analyses and prepared gender action plans to manage gender-specific impacts.

Relying on our people power

Our field- and desk-based teams are trained in producing biodiversity offsets and action plans and establishing no-net-loss or net-gain functions following international performance requirements. Field teams initially identify offsetting requirements that rely on biodiversity impact assessments. We assess the suitability of offset options and monitor and report on long-term offset viability. Our biodiversity and social specialists combine to develop assessment and impact mitigation strategies to provide sustainable ecosystem services solutions and management plans throughout a project’s life.

We have supported clients in their corporate social investments, engaged with communities in identifying appropriate projects and supported the formulation of agreements to facilitate community projects, including in health and education. We have accrued extensive expertise in baseline surveys and project evaluations related to child labour. We have undertaken vast surveys in Ethiopia and Tanzania and evaluations in the Tanzanian regions of Tabora, Mbeya and Songwe in the agrobusiness sector. We evaluated a child labour reduction project’s relevance, effectivity, efficiency, impact and sustainability, as well as cross-cutting issues of gender and child participation. The child labour project involved formulating components of a future project’s intervention strategy, whereas the Tanzanian surveys included assessing the capability of local and national NGOs. Our work on livelihood restoration has also involved identifying and assessing service providers, including many NGOs.
