TANZANIA NATURAL RESOURCE FORUM (TNRF) RESPONSE TO COVID 19

Dear Members and Partners,

Greetings from TNRF Secretariat

As you have heard, the COVID-19 pandemic cases in Tanzania, the government has taken several strict measures for one month period to protect citizens and minimize spreading: Public gathering and large meetings is kept to a minimum; Universities, primary and secondary schools closed, and events that bright together large numbers of people also suspended. 

TNRF secretariat is supporting measures government has put in place to protect its staff, members, partners and vulnerable groups we are working with, while keeping its operations running.  TNRF developed mechanisms for delivering its commitment for first quarter of 2020 including allowing some staff to work remotely, maintain working with less contact, some working groups meetings and national engagement meetings are also structured in different mechanisms that will not involve physical contacts or if necessary limited physical contacts, installed hygiene facilities at every point of the office for a few staff, members, and partners who will be physically  in the office on the needs.

EUROPEAN UNION TANZANIA DELEGATION VISIT TO KITETO TO ASSESS PRM IMPLEMENTATION

In preparation for the Result Oriented Monitoring (ROM) mission to Tanzania the European Union (EU) Tanzania had a technical visit to project sites in Kiteto to assess the progress of Participatory Rangelands Management Project (PRM) implementation. The visit took place from 10th - 12th February, 2020. The technical team comprised of focal persons from EU, Manyara Regional Secretariat, National Land Use Planning Commission, Kiteto District Council, KINNAPA and TNRF.

The EU focal person, the technical Advisor Dr. Mathew Mpanda first had a discussion with the Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries Development in Dodoma to understand the support and collaboration between the project and the Ministry for purposes of sustainability and to inform national policy processes. Thereafter the team visited two clusters of OLENGAPA and NAPALAI whereas they had an opportunity to meet community members and saw ongoing activities in these two clusters.

Issues highlighted during the technical visit:

  • EU technical advisor appreciated the work done so far is confident that the project will achieve its intended results within the time frame.
  • PRM project need to build synergies with other EU funded projects in northern Zone like Oikos project on women empowerment
  • For sustainability, the project should continue working communities, local government, national government and other partners to ensure best practices are shared accordingly as part of knowledge management.
  • The project needs to invest in print and TV/Radio communication to share the progress and success of the project. This can also act as a fundraising tool for PRM up scaling.
  • Rolling out of Community Investment Funds should be fast racked for the project to have time to monitor the progress and success
