The Government of Finland is commemorating its 100 years of independence this year, 2017. The Embassy has held some events in Tanzania that represent the Government of Finland contribution in Tanzania and areas, which Finland supports as part of its foreign development policy. This tree-planting event commemorates 100 years of Independence of Finland but also celebrates 50 years engagement with the forest sector in Tanzania. For a Finn, trees and forests represent a shelter and value for life but also a basic element of livelihoods and potential for economic prosperity. Planting a tree is a symbol of long term commitment and working for the future generations.

Finland's support to the forest sector in Tanzania has been to promote sustainable forest management by strengthening human resources and institution capacities, legal and regulatory frameworks, forest based industries and livelihoods and transparency, openness and accountability in management of forest resources. We also support promotion of community participation in decision making about the use and management of natural resources. This is a way of ensuring public responsibility on the resource to realize its contributions in national development goals.
