The Tanzania Forestry Working Group (TFWG), has been meeting regularly since August 2005. The TFWG, was formed to address advocacy and awareness raising on critical forest management and governance issues. The TFWG is supported and facilitated by TNRF, but depends on the members of the group to set the agenda and carry out activities.
The second task of the Group has been to provide support to the scaling up of participatory forest management (PFM) in Tanzania by consolidating current practices and working to address some of the key challenges for PFM in the country. So far, the FWG has provided a forum for PFM stakeholders to come together and share information, to identify issues of concern and to devise collaborative, innovative solutions to the challenges of scaling up PFM.
The FWG is currently undertaking a strategic review of its work in order to enable the Group become far more effective and to address current limitations in its human and financial resources.
