The Strategy aims to facilitate and coordinate 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 of 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+.
