This study aims to investigate the challenges facing the implementation of the natural gas policy in Tanzania.
A structured questionnaire was used to collect data, while the principal component analysis and statistical tests were used to explore the relationship between the opinions on the influential factors for the natural gas policy implementation and the demographic information.
The findings showed that over 50 per cent of the respondents regarded poor community participation and transparency and accountability as the major policy implementation challenges. Most of the demographic information showed the statistically significant effects of the policy implementation influential factors.
This paper provides the current challenges facing the implementation of the national natural gas policy in Tanzania.
The authors would like to thank the assistance of all stakeholders for their effort and time in taking part in the study and giving valuable opinions and perceptions.
