Abstract
This brief examines factors that have influenced local content in the Tanzanian mining sector and some of the challenges and successes of local content initiatives in mining. Local content has gradually gained momentum over the last ten years, both among government bodies, companies and civil society organizations. We argue that there has been a focus on quantity rather than quality in reporting of local content, that there is a need for stronger regulation of local suppliers to make them adhere to ethical standards, but also that investment in training and local cooperatives can be beneficial for both corporations and host communities.
