INDS 170:  “Modern Sub-Saharan Africa”

The course is designed to focus on comparative analysis of natural resources management policy, economic development and attitudinal difference in the African and Global frames; both independently and as they conceptually intersect and affect one another. This is a multidisciplinary course that addresses the links between development policy formulations as it relates to sustainability of community assets, property rights, and climate and ecosystem preservation. The academic theme “Community-Based Natural Resource Management” focuses specifically on Tanzania’s need to develop economic empowerment opportunities that recognizes and secures the legitimate claim to community lands, natural resources, and cultural assets.
