RIPL TANZANIA - PRESS RELEASE 18TH MAY 2016

New Partnership to Address Investment in Land in Tanzania
Stakeholders in Tanzania’s land sector launch project to develop guidance for more socially responsible investment practices
A new project aimed at ensuring investments in land and commodity procurement through supply chains are beneficial to local communities is launching in Tanzania today. The Responsible Investments in Property and Land (RIPL) project will develop country-specific, practical guidance tailored for use by investors, governments, and civil society organizations to equip each actor to engage in more gender sensitive and socially responsible investments. These guidebooks will outline internationally recognized standards and principles, such as the African Union Guiding Principles, and take into consideration the national governance framework and local context of Tanzania with the goal of improving investment practices so all stakeholders can share more equitably in the benefits of land-based investments.

Some of these developments include the establishment and operationalization of Tanzania Forest Service (TFS), re-focused Forestry and Beekeeping Division (FDB) and increased land and forest based investments such as plantation and local communities‟ forestry. Despite this being the case, studies shows that the emphasis on collecting relevant logging and timber trade statistics and information management at the national level, had declined in the years previous to 2006, due to other priorities within MNRT.
