Natural resource management plans are essential component among others; avoidance and reduction of natural resource related conflicts. On January, 2021 Tanzania Natural Resource Forum (TNRF) together with Longido district council officers facilitated the development of Natural Resources Management Plans and community led bylaws at Elerai and Olmolog villages. These villages were purposely selected for their readiness indicated to accept the process and diversity in land uses where both farming and pastoralism are conducted with critical challenges on land managements which needed immediate response. It was also noticed that village governments had no capacity and knowledge on how to well develop their plans for easy implementation and procedures necessary for bylaws making. In Olmolog for example, they had a list of disintegrated activities which were planned in one year, but they lacked knowledge on making sector specific plans.
