The Tanzania Forestry Working Group (TFWG), has been meeting regularly since August 2005. The TFWG was formed to address advocacy and awareness raising on critical forest management and governance issues. The TFWG is supported and facilitated by TNRF, but depends on the members of the group to set the agenda and carry out activities. Members of the group are all involved in forest management issues, either as organisations or as individuals interested in forest management in Tanzania. The FWG meets once every two months and facilitates the Mama Misitu Campaign on Forestry Governance, Independent Forest Monitoring, applied research on the biofuels industry as well as a roundtable discussion on carbon markets and community forestry.
