ESRF to Produce The Tanzania Human Development Report (THDR)
In March 2013, the Economic and Social Research Foundation (ESRF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with United Nations Development Program (UNDP)
to produce country human development reports which will be known as “Tanzania Human Development Report (THDR)”.
The four year project which commenced in March 2013 and expected to end in June 2016 will result in producing two reports which will come out in 2014 and 2016 respectively.

ESRF in collaboration with Zachariah Mampilly, Assistant Professor of Political Science, at Vassar College New York,
organized a two-day conference on "India in Africa: New Frontiers in South-South Relations"
The purpose of the conference was to understand the im- pact of India on African growth and development; trade and investment; war and peace; and
political, economic and social life more generally. To this end, the conference brought together both theoretical works on the meaning of
Indian-African relations within the broader context of South/South relations alongside more empirically grounded work based on fieldwork in
specific African countries.
