Working Groups


Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) has been identified as one critical approach in mitigating global climate change by reducing the levels of greenhouse gas emissions that enter our atmosphere. Today, fifteen to twenty percent of global GHG emissions are attributed to deforestation and forest degradation due to activities such as increased logging and agriculture.

Informal Discussion Group on the Environment

The IDGE is a neutral, informal, impartial, multi-sector, multi-disciplinary, multi-organisational, broad-based "discussion group", that meets regularly. The group brings together and creates a space for dialogue between individuals and organizations interested in, and concerned about, current and pending national and international environmental and conservation issues.

This group is related to employee information. For example, it is used internally to keep track of the whereabouts of the employees and as a record for all employee progress reports.

Community Forums

The 'Community Forums' is a joint initiative between TNRF and Ujamaa Community Resource Trust. The community forums are being developed in northern Tanzania to better enable rural communities to exchange information and bridge the gap between their local experiences in natural resource management and the development of appropriate national policy and law. The community forums initiative is also extending the opportunity for women to engage in decision-making in communities where it is customary for all major decisions to be made by men.


The Pastoralist Livelihoods Task Force emerged in April 2005 as an informal collaboration between several civil society organisations and development projects based in northern Tanzania working on livelihoods, rangelands management and policy development issues. Much of the group's focus is on pastoralism, reflecting its constituency.
