The 3rd National CBNRM Forum, Tanzania

Theme: “There is more to be done to fully unlock wildlife potentials in Tanzania”

Introduction and Background:

  1. This May, TNRF is set to host the 3rdNational CBNRM Forum in Tanzania following its Launch and Approval of CBNRM Stocktaking Report in 2012.
  2. TNRF begun a process to establish a series of dialogues on Community Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) with the aim of providing a platform for multi-stakeholder exchange of information and agreeing on a common course for CBNRM success in Tanzania. In 2012, TNRF undertook a stocktaking exercise of CBNRM in forestry, fisheries and Wildlife in Tanzania which also recommended the need for establishing a national level platform named National CBNRM forum to help disseminate information on CBNRM success stories, share experiences and promote a greater understanding of the actions and enabling environment on CBNRM that can lead to improved social, economical and environmental benefits. While facilitating engagement at the national level, TNRF has also joined a regional civil society network on CBNRM issues, called Southern Africa CBNRM Forum (SACF) whose secretariat is based in Lusaka-Zambia. Joining SACF helps to promote South-to-South exchange on CBNRM issues and experience. Similar efforts are also made to promote South-to-North linkages through exchange dialogues.
  3. To further promote CBNRM among other tasks, TNRF and WWF Tanzania through its Coastal East Africa Initiative entered a 3-years partnership programme on Land and forest-based investments programme on forest and land-based investments in Tanzania (2014-2017). The programme is geared towards building constructive dialogue with wide range of stakeholders including private sector, Government, civil society organizations to address and contribute to responsible investments on land and forests. With funds from WWF-Finland, among others, the partnership programme provide for support to hold National CBRNM fora in Tanzania.

BRIEF REPORT OF THE 7:30 BREAKFAST DEBATE – MARCH 25th 2016

Illegal Logging in Tanzania: Governance, Opportunities and Challenges
There has been substantial changes in the forestry sector that have also brought in new experiences, challenges and lessons. Some of these developments include the establishment and operationalization of Tanzania Forest Service (TFS), re-focused Forestry and Beekeeping Division (FDB) and increased land and forest based investments such as plantation and local communities‟ forestry. Despite this being the case, studies shows that the emphasis on collecting relevant logging and timber trade statistics and information management at the national level, had declined in the years previous to 2006, due to other priorities within MNRT.
