About Environmental Management and Economic Development Organization (EMEDO) 

Environmental Management and Economic Development Organization (EMEDO) is a not for profit organization, that was founded in the year 2005 and acquired its official registration in November 2006, under the Non-Governmental Organization Act of year 2002 with registration number OONGO/1771, to operate in the mainland Tanzania. In its implementation, the organization focuses on enhancing capacities of communities to get organized, having their voices heard, rights recognized and respected and to influence local, national and international policies that affect their rights of access, use and control of natural resources for improved livelihoods.

In April 2022, EMEDO signed an agreement to collaborate with the Royal national

Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) to implement the Lake Victoria Drowning Prevention Project

(LVDPP) in seven  selected communities in Muleba, Musoma, Ukerewe and Nyamagana Districts.  The idea to develop this project stems from the RNLI-funded research (2018) which showed that of 86 drowning deaths in 8 communities around the lake, 70 were fishers. Using learning from a 2021 RNLI socio-economic study of drowning risk and links to fishing practices, processing and sales, the project will co-design, develop and pilot drowning prevention solutions with the 7 communities. The project will employ a Human Centered Design approach to give voice to those left behind, reduce drowning risk, address marginalization and other inequalities, especially gender, and improve livelihoods. Impact will be amplified through a national drowning prevention network.


The Project will be implemented within 36 months period to bring about real change within the communities, building their resilience to drowning through specific actions at the local and national levels. It envisions stakeholders to take appropriate measures to reduce drowning in artisanal fishing communities around Lake Victoria by 2025.

To facilitate smooth implementation of this project, EMEDO wishes to recruit qualified, experienced, motivated and dynamic individuals in the following positions available;
