Tanzania Natural Resource Forum convened the Fourth National Community Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) Forum at Gold Crest Hotel, Arusha- Tanzania on 13th December 2019. This follows other similar earlier forums the first in 2012, the second in 2013 and the third in 2016. The main objectives of these forums were to call upon and facilitate a platform for the multi-stakeholder exchange of information, sharing experiences and agreeing on a common course for the success of CBNRM in Tanzania.

This 4th CBNRM forum focused its discussion in the Wildlife Sector in Tanzania, particularly on Engaging Communities in curbing Illegal Wildlife Trade in Tanzania covering the four pathways;

  1. Equitable benefits from conservation
  2. Law enforcement through strengthening local norms against IWT
  3. Costs of living with wildlife ‘Human wildlife conflict’
  4. Alternative livelihood improvement/Income Generation Activities (IGAs)

The forum brought 55 participants coming from the government and its institutions, national and international NGOs working in Tanzania, development partners, academia and research institutions, private sectors and CBOS, and community representatives including retired illegal hunters, the ex-poachers. The guest of honour for this event was the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism (PS-MNRT), Prof. Adolf Mkenda.
