TREE PLANTING TO COMMEMORATE 100 YEARS OF FINLAND INDEPENDENCE

                                                         

TREE PLANTING TO COMMEMORATE 100 YEARS OF FINLAND INDEPENDENCE

The Government of Finland is commemorating its 100 years of independence this year, 2017. The Embassy has held some events in Tanzania that represent the Government of Finland contribution in Tanzania and areas, which Finland supports as part of its foreign development policy. This tree-planting event commemorates 100 years of Independence of Finland but also celebrates 50 years engagement with the forest sector in Tanzania. For a Finn, trees and forests represent a shelter and value for life but also a basic element of livelihoods and potential for economic prosperity. Planting a tree is a symbol of long term commitment and working for the future generations.

Finland's support to the forest sector in Tanzania has been to promote sustainable forest management by strengthening human resources and institution capacities, legal and regulatory frameworks, forest based industries and livelihoods and transparency, openness and accountability in management of forest resources. We also support promotion of community participation in decision making about the use and management of natural resources. This is a way of ensuring public responsibility on the resource to realize its contributions in national development goals.

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.

SURVEY: AN ASSESSMENT OF USAID's NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PORTFOLIO IN TANZANIA

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.
