Mariam Albert is in her second-year of a Diploma in Marketing at the College of Business Education (CBE) in Dar es Salaam campus. Her aim is to become a Marketing manager of a multinational company. When she enrolled, Mariam missed the opportunity to live in a hostel at the campus as is small and can only accommodate a handful of students. Her family lives in a region far from Dar es Salaam – so she had to look for a room to rent off-campus. Mariam was able to find a room in a house many streets away from the campus.

But Mariam is facing a lot of challenges staying off-campus. Traffic is a constant problem as she goes to and from college. She is spending a lot of money on her daily expenses - paying rent, water and electricity bills and bus fares every day to and from college. Mariam knows that many female students like herself are concerned for their safety, both as they travel to and from the college and even while in the strange apartment. She knows all the pressure from her new accommodation interferes with her concentration on her studies and achieving here aim of a good job in the future.
One afternoon as Mariam was having lunch at the College's canteen, she joined a conversation that her friends and some canteen workers were having. They were discussing the proposed on-campus hostel being prepared as a Public Private Partnership (PPP) project. The project was being presented to the off-campus students and the canteen owners and other community members. They spoke of how the new hostel could change the campus outlook, improve students' welfare and safety, increase business opportunities for canteen owners, and other small businesses around the campus. Everyone seemed excited and looking forward to the start of construction.

After lunch, Mariam called her mother and told her of the exciting news. Her mother was so happy and relieved. She told Mariam how she is always worried about her safety in the crowded city with no relatives, challenging public transportation - especially after college hours, thinking she may get home late at night due to traffic. She just hopes the new accommodation will be safe and a good place for her daughter to study. Mariam was touched by her mother's words.

As a result of the engagement with community members like Mariam, CBE knows how to ensure the student hostel can provide a safe and affordable housing option for its students.
PPPs are being prepared for communities across the country as a step towards Tanzania’s Development Vision 2025. One way PPPs are being used is to provide better and safer student hostels for those young women and men pursing further education. A priority is to help young women feel more secure and able to focus on learning. The project management team for CBE’s Dar es Salaam’s campus, led by the college under the guidance of the Minister of Finance, has consulted many community members just like Mariam over the past year. Their aim is to understand the needs of the community and to ensure that the PPP project they are preparing will meet these needs. This story is one example of who the PPP is being prepared to help and how it will improve their lives. The project management team will continue to engage with communities as they move towards procurement of the private partner, then throughout construction and the operation of the hostel.

Hadithi ya PPP ya Eva Lyimo

Eva Lima anaishi na wazazi wake mtaa wa Kimara Mwisho, Dar es salaam. Eva anaishi umbali wa kilomita kumi na nane kutoka Chuo cha Usimamizi wa Biashara (CBE), tawi la Dar es Salaam anakosomea Ugavi ngazi ya Stashahada. Imekuwa kawaida kwake kupita katikati ya mitaa ya jiji iliyo na shughuli nyingi sana, na hali huwa mbaya kwake muhula wa masomo ukianza. Hulazimika kukatisha usingizi ili awahi kuamka na kuwahi usafiri wa kwenda chuoni akitokea Kimara. Kutokana na changamoto ya usafiri Eva hujihimu mapema sana kwenda kituo cha Mwendokasi cha Kimara kwa ajili ya kuepuka kusongamana na kugombania usafiri.

Kama inavyokuwa asubuhi anapokuja chuoni, Eva husubiri kwa hamu mhadhiri wa kipindi cha mwisho ahitimishe nukta yake darasani ili aharakishe kwenda kituoni kugombania kuingia tena kwenye Mwendokasi kurudi zake Kimara. Huwa anaumia moyoni anapowaaga marafiki zake waliobahatika kubaki chuoni. Akiwa katika kituo cha Mwendokasi, itamchukua Eva muda mrefu kupata basi na hutumia takribani saa moja kufika nyumbani.

Anapokuwa kituoni akisubiri usafiri, anafikiria jinsi marafiki zake walivyo na bahati ya kupata nafasi katika hosteli chuoni. Anakumbuka ahadi ya ujenzi wa hosteli mpya ndani ya eneo la chuo na anatamani litokee mapema ili anufaike na fursa hiyo ya kuishi ndani ya chuo. Eva anatamani ikamilike hata kesho kwani ataweza kufika darasani kwa wakati huku akiwa makini na masomo na akili iliyotulia. Mara nyingi amekuwa akikosa furaha kwasababu ya kuwaza mateso ya kusafiri kila siku asubuhi na jioni.  Akiishi kwenye hosteli za chuo atakuwa salama zaidi kwani ataepuka hatari za kutembea usiku akitoka chuo.

Lahaula, kumbe muda wote huo akiwa amezama katika lindi la mawazo kuhusu taarifa aliyosikia ya mipango ya ujenzi wa hosteli, mara ghafla anasukumwa na watu waliokuwa wanakimbilia basi la mwendokasi ambalo hakuliona au kulisikia. Ah! Ameshakosa nafasi na limejaa hadi mlangoni.

Basi jingine likaja naye alibahatika kulipanda. Akiwa amesimama kwenye basi, mkono wake ukishikilia bomba juu yake, anawaza kama angeweza kupata nafasi katika mradi wa hosteli za ndani ya chuo unaoandaliwa na CBE. Anajua chuo kinaandaa mradi huo kama Ubia kati ya Sekta ya Umma na Sekta Binafsi (PPP) ili kuwasaidia wanafunzi wanaoishi nje ya chuo. Eva alishiriki kwenye mahojiano kuhusu ujenzi wa hosteli hizo mpya za PPP. Alifurahi sana na anaombea hosteli hizo zijengwe na wanafunzi wapangishwe kwa gharama nafuu kwani itakuwa imempa unafuu kwake na kwa wanafunzi wengine wenye changamoto kama zake. Alifurahishwa pia alipojua kwamba mikataba ya PPP itahakikisha majengo yanasimamiwa na kutunzwa kitaalamu.

PPP zinaandaliwa kwa ajili ya jamii mbali mbali nchini kama sehemu ya Dira ya Maendeleo Tanzania ya mwaka 2025. Kwa kupitia PPP hosteli bora na salama zinajengwa kwa ajili ya wanafunzi wa kike na wa kiume ili waweze kujiendeleza vizuri kimasomo. Kipaumbele ni kuwasaidia wanafunzi wa kike wasome na kuishi katika mazingira salama. Mwaka uliopita, timu ya usimamizi wa mradi wa CBE, tawi la Dar es Salaam, ikiongozwa na chuo, chini ya usimamizi wa Wizara ya Fedha ilifanya mazungumzo na wanajamii wengi kama Eva. Lengo likiwa kutaka kuelewa mahitaji ya jamii na kuhakikisha kwamba mradi huo wa PPP unaotengenezwa utakidhi mahitaji hayo. Hadithi hii ni mfano mmojawapo wa namna mradi huu wa PPP unavyoweza kuwasaidia walengwa na kuboresha maisha yao. Timu ya usimamizi wa mradi itaendelea kushirikisha jamii katika mchakato wa kutafuta mshirika kutoka sekta binafsi, kisha wakati wote wa ujenzi na usimamizi wa hosteli.

The University of Eastern Finland (UEF) is collaborating with the College of Business Education (CBE) and Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA) to execute a four-year MAKUTANO research project in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. On August, 17-21, 2020, UEF organized an online course on “Environmental Collaboration and Conflict Resolution” which brought together over 40 participants from over 15 counties all around the globe. The participants come from wide range of countries including Finland, Germany, Russia, Mongolia, USA, Mexico, Tanzania, and Nigeria. Dr. Ubaldus Tumaini, the postdoctoral researcher in the MAKUTANO research project, participated in this five-day course. Professor Edda Tandi Lwoga is one the project PIs representing CBE.

The course sought to further understanding of environmental conflicts and the possibilities of collaboration and mitigation of conflicts through collaborative governance, mediation, and participatory methods. The course was both academic and practice driven.

The responsible teachers from the University of Eastern Finland, Professors Irmeli Mustalahti and Lasse Peltonen at the Department of Geographical and Historical Studies, emphasised that environmental experts are required increasingly to identify, analyse, and mediate conflicts. These skills should be widely taught to various professionals.

“Skills of collaboration and mediation should be considered as part of civic education and their teaching should be emphasised similarly to first aid skills”, says Mustalahti.

During the course, participants presented their experience of the social conflicts that they have encountered in the governance of natural resources. The training provided international level research-based methods for analysing and mediating environmental conflicts. Conflict situations from Finland, Russia, USA, Indonesia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Mexico, and Mozambique were discussed during the course workshops.

“The course is really informative, the approaches being highlighted by the teachers are vital for my role in the Tanzanian commercial forestry sector as an intermediary between local actors, government institutions and the private sector. Collaborative governance may be the solution to most of the challenges we are facing in the sector. I hope that I can apply these methods through people-public-private dialogues and partnerships”, highlights Kikolo R. Mwakasungula, one of the course attendees from the African Forestry organisation.

The international teachers included Steve Greenwood and Laurel Singer from the National Policy Consensus Center (NPCC), Portland State University, USA. One of the instructors was Jonna Kangasoja from Akordi, a company specialising in environmental conflict resolution. PhD students directed study groups concentrating on analysing conflicts from their case study countries. The course coordinator was Emma Luoma, a doctoral student from the University of Eastern Finland.

“In an international course, students as well as teachers learn from each other’s experiences. This is an excellent opportunity for a multi-voiced and critical discussion of environmental conflict and collaborative governance models”, Luoma said.

The course organisers included individuals from the ALL-YOUTH, CORE and MAKUTANO research projects. ALL-YOUTH explores the capabilities of young people and the obstacles that hamper their engagement with society, as well as the visions of youth regarding a sustainable future, growth, and well-being. CORE builds on notions of interdependence and collaborative governance as responses to complex societal problems, and seeks practices for creating fair, efficient, and knowledge-based solutions to complex problems related to the environment and use of natural resources. ALL-YOUTH and CORE are funded by the Finnish Strategic Research Council (SRC). MAKUTANO is funded by the Develop Academy Programme (2019-2022), which is jointly supported by the Academy of Finland and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. The aim of the action research is to gain an understanding of Tanzania’s forest governance transformation.

Prior courses have been held at the University of Eastern Finland, as well as in Denmark and in Mexico with collaborative organisations and universities. The next course in the series will be organised in Tanzania by the MAKUTANO research project in 2021. During 2018-2019, CORE organised a “Collaborative Public Manager” training programme for public sector officials in Finland.
