Overview :

The Government of Tanzania, with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) through United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), is implementing a 5-year project aimed at safeguarding the value of the Miombo Forest which covers 40% of Tanzania, in two major blocks; the drier south-east and the larger and richer area in the moist west of Tanzania, bordering the Congolian Forest patches of Mahale Mountains.. The project is in response to the fact that despite its local and global significance, the Miombo woodlands are threatened by deforestation and degradation driven by settlers, land clearance and burning for agriculture, saw millers, tobacco industry, charcoal producers, and climate change. The project’s goal, therefore, is to secure ecosystem and biodiversity values while providing a buffer to the Congolian Rain forest, ensuring food security and sustainable livelihoods. The objective of the project is to enable Miombo-dependent communities to adopt productive practices that are favourable to biodiversity conservation, reduce carbon emissions from land use change and improve livelihoods. The project’s immediate focus is an area of 133,400 hectares covering 4 districts (Uyui, Urambo and Tabora in Tabora Region) and Mlele in Katavi. The project initially targeted 12,530 households spread over 28 villages in the project area but because of administrative changes to districts and regions, it is presently directed at 16,096 households in 42 villages.

After 4 years of implementation, the project intends to share its results, experiences, and lessons learnt with stakeholders. To ensure that such information is effectively shared, the project will support preparation of documentary and brochures. The project is, therefore, seeking the services of an expert in production and publication of a digital documentary and brochures (hard copies) of success stories with minimum supervision.
