61. Community Based Natural Woodlands Management Project
  Wednesday, March 22, 2006  by Admin
  The Project started in April 1999 and Phase 1 will run for three years. The aim of the Project is to develop community based management of natural forests and woodlands in Iringa District, and through this effort conserve valuable biological diversity and improved welfare of rural communities in line with the new Forest Policy (1998); the Wildlife Policy (1998) and the proposed Land Bill 1999 and the Village Land Act (1998).
62. The Uluguru Mountains Biodiversity Conservation Project (UMBCP)
  Wednesday, March 22, 2006  by Admin
  The UMBCP is funded by Danida through Danish Ornithological Foundation (DOF), Denmark in partnership with the Wildlife Conservation Society of Tanzania (WCST) in the host country.
This is a three year Project effective as from May 1999 and due to terminate the first phase by 31 January 2002. A Phase II proposal is in the pipeline.
63. Science at sea in Tanzania
  Wednesday, March 22, 2006  by Admin
  The coastline of mainland Tanzania measures more than 800 kilometres. Three islands lying 25 to 50 kilometres offshore, Unguja and Pemba (which together make up Zanzibar) and Mafia, add 600 kilometres to this total. The idyllic tropical setting, with long, sandy beaches shaded by coconut palms, is enhanced by a fringe of coral reefs, broken only where the rivers that flow across Tanzanias narrow coastal plain spill into the sea.
64. Tanzanian Government endorses conservation projects
  Wednesday, March 1, 2006  by Admin
  Sixty-four projects launched to protect Tanzania and Kenya's threatened forests and species Dar es Salaam, Tanzania - The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) and four East African organisations today announced the launch of a portfolio of conservation projects in the Eastern Arc Mountains and Coastal Forests.
65. Water in Rural Communities
  Wednesday, February 22, 2006  by Admin
  A review of the World Bank water supply projects by OED shows that local community involvement in decision-making about services and implementing and managing those services is linked to beneficiary satisfaction with services, and thus a greater willingness to pay.
66. DAC Subgroup on Environment and Natural Resources: Terms of Reference
  Wednesday, February 15, 2006  by Admin
  Environment and Natural Resources (ENR). Tanzania's environment and natural resources provide a source of peoples' livelihoods and play an essential role in the productive sectors (e.g. agriculture, mining and tourism) and are a source for the country's energy and water needs. Tanzania’s natural resource endowment includes land, soil, water, minerals, forests, fisheries, and wildlife.
67. Forest policy changes in Tanzania: towards community participation in forest management
  Wednesday, February 15, 2006  by Admin
  This paper is about the emerging theme of joint forest management between communities and the government in Tanzania. As per the Arusha Declaration of 1967 which aimed at building a socialist state in Tanzania, forests were nationalised. However, the socialist experiment was beset by economic problems, which also affected the forest sector.
68. The DPG: Natural resources - Forest, fisheries & Wildlife
  Wednesday, February 15, 2006  by Admin
  The DPG - Environment and Natural Resources (DPG-E) held a retreat at the beginning of 2005, to take stock of the current situation in the environment and natural resource sector. The focus was to identify opportunities for further harmonisation and alignment in Development Partners’ support to Government's agenda on poverty reduction and growth, through sustainable management of natural resources, directed by MKUKUTA and the new Environmental Management Act.
69. The development of community wildlife management in Tanzania: lessons from the Ruaha ecosystem
  Wednesday, February 15, 2006  by Admin
  This paper has been prepared as a contribution to the debate on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to community-based conservation in Africa. It focuses on the development of community wildlife management in Tanzania, and in particular on the experience of successive ODA/DFID-funded projects – REWMP and MBOMIPA - working with communities in Iringa District that neighbour Ruaha National Park.
70. Highland Sanctuary: Environmental History in Tanzania’s Usambara Mountains.
  Wednesday, February 15, 2006  by Admin
  Highland Sanctuary situates the Usambara Mountains of northeastern Tanzania within the
environmental history of the highlands which stretch through eastern Kenya and Tanzania. Conte
uses contrasts between the eastern and western massifs of Usambara to reveal some of the underappreciated diversity in environmental change, which may be found throughout the "Eastern Arc" mountains.
71. The Millennium Development Goals and natural resources management: reconciling sustainable livelihoods and resource conservation or fuelling a divide?
  Wednesday, February 15, 2006  by Admin
  Natural resource management is central to the achievement of most of the Millennium Development Goals. Natural resources provide food and a wide range of other goods (fuel, fodder, timber, medicines, building materials, inputs to industries, etc). Natural resources provide services on which all human activity depends (including watersheds, carbon sequestration and soil fertility). Natural resource exploitation provides the livelihoods for a high proportion of the world's population.
72. The New Partnership for Africa’s Development The Journey So Far
  Wednesday, February 15, 2006  by Admin
  The New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) is now four years old. The
foundation document, which outlines NEPAD's vision, principles and priorities, was
adopted by the Assembly of African Heads of State and Government of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), now the African Union (AU), in July 2001.
73. GTZ-Wildlife Programme Tanzania
  Wednesday, February 15, 2006  by Admin
  Since 1987 the Federal Republic of Germany has supported the United Republic of Tanzania in
the protection and sustainable use of wildlife. Natural resources conservation is one of three
focal areas of development cooperation. Main joint projects: Selous Conservation Programme; Saadani National Park; Katavi-Rukwa Conservation and Development Programme; Selous-Niassa Wildlife Corridor; Community Based Natural Resources Management; Wildlife Policy Advisory Services
74. A New Approach to Sustainable Tourism Development: Moving Beyond Environmental
  Wednesday, February 15, 2006  by Admin
  Tourism is one of the largest and fastest growing industries in the world. It is an increasingly important source of income, employment and wealth in many countries. However, its rapid expansion has also had detrimental environmental (and socio-cultural) impact in many regions. In this DESA discussion paper, I examine the main economic benefits and environmental impact of tourism, and review the development of the international sustainable tourism agenda.
75. Tourism investment as a tool for development and poverty reduction - The experience in Small Island Developing States (SIDS)
  Wednesday, February 15, 2006  by Admin
  Twenty-seven of the Commonwealth's 53 members are Small Island Developing States (SIDS). They have populations of less than 1.5 million and are characterised by their vulnerability in the areas of environmental disaster, limited human resources, economic resources and security. It is, therefore, a major challenge to assist these countries to identify sectors with growth potential, i.e. sectors where they can be competitive.
