The National Engagement Strategy (NES) in Tanzania (NES) is a national strategy employed by Members of the International Land Coalition (ILC) that aims to promote People Centred Land Governance (PCLG), bringing about transformation in land governance at country level. The NES approach is to work towards two main outcomes: a) The setting-up of a multi-stakeholder platform on land governance for policy dialogue and knowledge sharing; and b) A country strategy for engagement on land governance developed and agreed upon by all actors involved. 

On 28th of August last year (2017), members of the Land Based working group identified areas for monitoring which includes Kilolo, Mvomero, Kilwa, Ngorongoro and Kilombero. From 16th to 27th of October, 2017, Members of the LBWG through TNRF conducted the first project Monitoring visit in the areas. This was followed by the District multi-stakeholders Forums in Kilolo, Kilombero, Mvomero and Kilwa District putting emphasis on investment that take into regards people centred land governance. Out of these activities the findings demanded further monitoring of the areas due to their investment challenges. In that case, members of the LBWG through TNRF undertook monitoring in Kilwa and Kilombero from 25th to 31st of January, 2018. .
