Forest Governance Learning Group

The Forest Governance Learning Group (FGLG) is an informal alliance of in-country groups and international partners currently active in seven African and three Asian countries. Issues of FGLG in Tanzania have been based on the illegal timber trade campaign implemented by the Tanzania Forest Working Group (TFWG) and REDD pilot projects issues which are all touching the livelihoods of the rural community and very well linked to timber harvesting. The campaign is based on governance shortfalls study commissioned by the Tanzanian government trying to demonstrate how effective and equitable natural resource governance is absolutely critical to development and livelihoods in Tanzania and the REDD activities are initiations undertaken by TFWG members piloting on the implementation of REDD in Tanzania.
