Tanzania, an East African country with abundant natural and human resources, shares a similar policy climate of economic and political transformation with other developing countries as they move towards greater integration into the global economy (Kulindwa 2002). An economic downturn in the 1970s and 1980s, brought about by oil price rises, unfavourable climatic conditions and growing external debt, resulted in Tanzania pursuing economic liberalisation, privatisation and deregulation reforms typical of IMFled Structural Adjustment Programmes of the time.
The World Guide to CSR: A Country-by-Country Analysis of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility The World Guide to CSR is the first book to provide comparable national profiles that describe the evolution and practice of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility (CSR) for 58 countries and 5 global regions. Each regional and national profile includes key information about the relevant CSR history, country-specific issues, trends, research and leading organisations. The purpose of the book is to give CSR professionals (including managers, consultants, academics and NGOs focusing on the social, environmental and ethical responsibilities of business) a quick reference guide to CSR in different regional and national contexts. This unique resource will be an essential acquisition for all organisations who need to benchmark their CSR strategies throughout different regions and cultures and want the best possible intelligence on the key issues and concerns relating to corporate social responsibility in all of the markets in which they operate.
