National Strategy For Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD )

Executive
Strategy
Passed in 2012
The Strategy aims to facilitate and co-ordinate the implementation of REDD+ policies in Tanzania. This general objective is translated into nine specific goals, namely:
- establish robust baseline scenarios and an effective monitoring, reporting, and verification system for determining forest carbon changes
- establish and operationalise a fair and transparent REDD+ financial mechanism and incentive schemes
- engage and enhance active participation of stakeholders in REDD+ processes
- strengthen a national system for governance and co-ordination of REDD+ processes
- build capacity in terms of training, infrastructure, systems and equipment to support the REDD+ policy
- generate knowledge and promote scientific understanding on REDD+ issues through research
- strengthen public awareness, communication and information sharing systems on REDD+ issues
- strengthen mechanisms to address drivers of deforestation and forest degradation in various agro-ecological zones
- ensure that gender is mainstreamed in the implementation of REDD+ process and action plan
The strategy also adopts a series of strategic actions to curb deforestation, including the diversification of energy sources other than traditional biomass; support to implement land reforms and issuance of Customary Certificate Rights of Occupancy (CCROS); review of the livestock policy and strategies to reduce overgrazing and nomadic pastoral practices; Introduction and promotion of innovations that contribute to reducing carbon emissions from productive activities; Advocacy for government policy on large scale farming investment in the context of REDD+.
