NATIONAL FORESTRY RESOURCES MONITORING AND ASSESSMENT OF TANZANIA (NAFORMA)
In Tanzania, the state and trends of the forestry resources are largely unknown. The existing information is fragmented and outdated. Reliable information on Tanzanian forest resources is mainly constrained by the lack of institutional capacity. Under the National Forest Programme of Tanzania, the National Forestry Resources Monitoring and Assessment (NAFORMA) was identified as a priority activity for the Forest and Beekeeping Division (FBD). The results of NAFORMA are needed to support the national policy processes while at the same time addressing issues of Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) and Green House Gas (GHG) as international reporting obligations.
