Public Consultation on National Forest Stewardship Standard (NFSS) for mainland Tanzania

Tanzania is in the process of developing National Forest Stewardship Standards (NFSS) based on the Forest Stewardship Council’s (FSC) certification system. An application to develop national forest stewardship standards for Tanzania was submitted by the Standards Development Group (SGD) to FSC International and was approved in 2015.  Through collaboration and support from World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Tanzania Country Office, as well as technical and financial support from the FSC Sub-regional Office for East Africa, the SDG completed the first draft of the NFSS in May 2016. 


During the month of June 2016, the standards were tested in the field - in both plantations and native forests in Iringa and Kilwa, respectively. A third draft has as a result been completed and is ready for stakeholders’ consultation.

Healthy forests are havens for biodiversity, provide a lifeline for billions of rural people worldwide, and play a vital role in mitigating global climate change. The value of our work to conserve these important habitats has now been recognised internationally. Singled out among more than 130 applicants, MCDI's CEO - Makala Jasper, was presented an award for International Nature Conservation by the Whitley Fund for Nature at their annual ceremony in London yesterday.

" Winning this award means a lot to us. It means MCDI can expand our work to an entirely new area - the first step to connect existing community forests and their wildlife with one of Africa's largest protected areas" - Makala Jasper
