dc.description.abstractA sustainable project must contribute to economic and social welfare without depleting natural resources, destroying the environment or harming human health. However, the current project management system focuses on project economic objectives as the primary objective instead of the resulting social transformation and environmental changes. Building upon basic sustainability principles, the problem was addressed in this thesis by a critical review and analysis of project management processes, development and the use of sustainability indicators. With this understanding, a system approach was used to conceptualize a paradigm shift in project management system for sustainability incorporating Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), Cause- effect chain and the Social Economic Resource models. Using a multi-evidence research methodology of four case studies in Tanzania, at different phases of project cycle, it was established that success of the case projects and facilities, have depended on financial and technical aspects. In order to move towards sustainability, project management processes were restructured based on developed project sustainability indicator models and management integration framework for sustainability referred to as ‘Project Management Integration Framework’. The framework provides a holistic approach to integrate economic, environmental and social concerns into project cycle which are difficult or not adequately addressed in modern project impact assessment methods. The sustainability indicators, as general systems.en_US
