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.
