We view the quality and equity of governance as fundamentally determining how natural resources are managed and how they support the livelihoods of Tanzanians and the sustainable economic development of the country.

Many of the last remaining intact terrestrial and freshwater systems in the tropical world are in Africa - from the intact delta of the wild Ogooué River to the grasslands of Northern Tanzania to the deep and spectacular lakes of the Rift Valley. Ecosystem services such as fish protein, clean water, and floodplain productivity that intact ecosystems provide act as life support for many poor, rural communities dependent upon them.Economies of sub-Saharan Africa are also growing rapidly, and ecological systems and services are likely to be significantly stressed in the coming decades.
