Total REDD+ Finance Disbursed:

$46,500,000

Forest cover is approximately 33.4% of Tanzania, with an average of 1.1% lost each year through deforestation and degradation. Agricultural expansion, commercial logging and rising energy needs are the main drivers. Tanzania has developed a National REDD+ Strategy and Action Plan to address these increasing pressures on its Forests. This strategy was officially launched in March 2013.

Tanzania is also finalizing the establishment of a National REDD Fund and a National Carbon Monitoring Center which provide long term monitoring and coordinate financing for REDD+ activities in the country. The REDD Fund will be similar to the Tanzania Forest Fund which supports sustainable conservation and management of forest resources. The government is also currently finalizing a Social and Environment Safeguard mechanism based on internationally agreed principles and guidance. The REDD+ Readiness process in Tanzania is led by the National REDD Task Force with facilitation from the National REDD Secretariat.

REDD+ Activities in Tanzania

  • REDD+ Activities in Tanzania

    The chart shows the REDD+ activities supported by the different donor institution types. The list of activities and definitions was drawn from broad agreement among REDD+ experts, including the civil society national partners collecting data across the initiative countries.

    It is important to note that the absence of support for an activity from a specific donor type does not constitute a lack of attention to the activity overall, since the activity could be well-funded through other donor types.

    In Tanzania, the donors tracked are funding a broad array of REDD+ activities. Carbon offsets was partially supported in all projects and two projects aiming to produce carbon offsets are in the process of finalizing their Project Design Documents (PDDs).

    Stakeholder engagement: Funding aimed at improving participation of non-governmental stakeholders through the design, implementation, and/or monitoring phases of REDD+, and/or funding that promotes media outreach.

    Rights and tenure: Funding directed at addressing issues of rights and tenure – including clarifying land, property and carbon rights.

    MRV and reference levels: Funding aimed at improving the monitoring, reporting and/or verification of REDD+, including changes in forest cover, forest degradation, biodiversity, or social and governance levels. Funding to define or implement reference levels to measure emissions, co-benefits and governance in country.

    Safeguards: Funding aimed at identifying barriers to forest conservation and enabling social and environmental benefits.

    Policy and law analysis & development, REDD strategy development & advocacy: Funding aimed at promoting research, advocacy and outreach to policymakers.

    Institutional strengthening: Funding aimed at developing in-country public institutions, ministries, staffing capacity and resources for REDD+.

    Forest carbon project design: Funding aimed at developing project design documents (PDDs) and validation activities. This includes credited projects that go to the market and those that want REDD+ payments.

    Improved forest and land management to reduce deforestation and degradation (implementation): Funding supporting protected areas, sustainable forest management, and reforestation management activities – including enforcement and compliance.

    Carbon offsets and performance-based payments for improved forest and land management: Funding aimed at carbon offsets, direct payments, actual benefits sharing, and actual payments such as incentive and performance-based payments.

    Other: Funding aimed at REDD+ activities that do not fall within the broad categories listed. For example, funding that is listed as technical support.
