Schroeder Siegfried (Germany): "Political scientist with more than 20 years’ experience in development work in Africa, dealing with support of collective cooperatives, community empowerment and sustainable agriculture – just to mention a few. Currently he is serving as Director of East African Regional Office of the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung / Foundation in Dar es Salaam / Tanzania. He is cooperating with civil society organisations at grassroots, national and regional level, which share a common rights-based and governance approach in regard of access to land, water, minerals and other commons. Effects of climate change, land and water grabbing as well as the hype in oil, gas and uranium exploration and exploitation in East Africa are seen as particular threats for the livelihoods of local communities at this point in time. The cooperation work is guided by following principles: Sustainable development can't be achieved without social justice; and: social justice can only be accomplished by empowered communities."
