Research title:  The Impact of NGOs on the Sustainable Global Economic Governance and Development in a Tanzanian Society.

The occurrence of natural disasters in the last few months of 2017 in the region of Kagera in Tanzania was a human tragedy that took people’s lives, caused tremendous suffering, and left deep wounds within communities, especially in the districts of Bukoba Urban, Bukoba Rural, Muleba, Karagwe and Missenyi. Although such natural disasters are not preventable, much more could have been done to prevent the high number of deaths and the huge amount of damage incurred. That crisis must now serve as a wake-up call for increased global and national action to reduce the risk posed by such disasters.

The world and the nation cannot remain ill-prepared to address the threat posed by future natural disasters. While basic surveillance capacities in the area are very important in foretelling and thus reducing disaster risks and such efforts are greatly appreciated, existing knowledge shows that studies are primarily focused on understanding and modelling the impact of NGOs on sustainable economic governance and development in communities.

In terms of understanding and modelling, various approaches have been recommended which will now be addressed. For example, critical approach-based methods were applied to deal with time-related factors; while knowledge-based systems are sometimes used to provide work plan generation and to communicate and visualize influencing factors. However, there is limited progress on classifying various measures associated with an NGO’s performance in relation to sustainable economic governance and development.

What is missing from these studies is a comprehensive and structured approach to measuring an NPO’s performance that will be useful in managing factors influencing sustainable economic governance and development. Therefore, this research proposal will influence current knowledge and improve methods by adopting data quantification methods in order to evaluate the money value of an NGO’s performance and using laboratory computer-generated simulation (Virtual Reality VR), which will help to communicate the nature of factors affecting sustainable economic governance and development.

In this way, this research project can enhance NGOs, other agencies and local government in finding means of managing influencing factors such as; communication, types of policies and technology that will enhance sustainable economic governance and development in a Tanzanian society and even around the globe. This project will involve field work with NGOs operating in Tanzania such as; Caritas, Red Cross, UN Habitat, UNIESCO, Kolping Society, KADETFU and World Vision. It is  under the supervision of Dr. Susan Murphy, TCD, Ireland.
