Forest Governance in Tanzania – Community Voices
Today, the Forest Governance Learning Group (coordinated by TNRF) is hosting an event in Dar es Salaam entitled, " A Hearing: The State of Forest Governance in Tanzania - from a Citizen's perspective." This event gives space to Tanzanian citizens to share their experiences with and concerns about forest governance practices in their communities. Individuals from four Mama Misitu Campaign project areas of Dar es Salaam, Coast, Lindi and Mtwara Regions are providing testimonies about governance issues, law enforcement challenges, and also about success stories on forest governance. There is a panel of experts listening to the stories and providing their reactions and recommendations for moving forward.
