Tanzania Natural Resource Forum (TNRF) and its members express their deep sorrow following the death of Wayne Lotter, founder and chairman of PAMS Foundation. Wayne Lotter was shot and killed by unknown people on Wednesday 16th August 2017 in Dar es Salaam.

It’s widely known that for decades, Wayne dedicated his life to protecting Africa’s wildlife, supporting government initiatives on anti-poaching and worked closely with natural resources actors and partners to ensure wildlife is well protected and conserved.

He undertook tremendous work in Tanzania protecting elephant and other wildlife, establishing himself as a trusted supporter and friend to field rangers and the communities adjacent to wildlife protected areas.



At the request of USAID Tanzania, ECODIT, (a small US company), is carrying out an assessment of USAID’s Natural Resource Management (NRM) portfolio in Tanzania. The assessment aims to;

  1. Illuminate ways in which the portfolio is making progress toward the stated purpose of improved stewardship of natural resources, and
  2. Identify the assumptions or gaps in the design and management approach

The evaluation will generate evidence for informed decision-making and learning that responds to various intended audiences with differing interests, ranging from whether the NRM portfolio is advancing the goal of Tanzania reaching middle-income status to whether activities are having the intended outcomes.

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.
