The life of Tanzanians is intimately connected to the environment: survival of present and future generations depends on the harmonious relationship with the natural elements. Rational utilization of environmental resources is determined by planners and decision makers who need correct, up-to-date and reliable data and information. Data and information generation towards a comprehensive overview of Tanzania's resources, their status and trends, and the costs and benefits of their conservation is a pre-requisite for basic understanding for the formulation of strategic interventions.
This environmental web-portal is a collection of data and information from different collaborators in Tanzania. It is aimed at providing basic data to enhance and catalyse effective planning and decision making for conservation and protection of the environment as outlined in different policy documents like (but not limited to) Tanzania Vision 2025, MKUKUTA, the National Environment Policy (1997) and the Environment Management Act Cap 191
