Roughly 40 per cent of the United Republic of Tanzania is covered by forests and woodlands. However, expanding arable land from the lowlands towards the mountains, rapidly rising energy needs and commercial logging are all factors contributing to deforestation and forest degradation in the country. In May, the inception report was approved which, together with the arrival of key programme staff in July, marked the start of the implementation phase of Tanzania’s National Programme.

Progress against the Warsaw Framework for REDD+

The United Republic of Tanzania was supported by a NP between 2009 and 2013. During this time the country was supported on i) National governance framework and strengthened institutional capacities for REDD; ii) increased capacities for capturing REDD elements within National Monitoring, Assessment, Reporting and Verification Systems; iii) improved capacities to manage REDD and provide other forest ecosystem services at district and local levels and lastly; and iv) broad based stakeholder support for REDD in Tanzania.
