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.
