National Forest Policy

The first National Forest Policy of Tanzania was enunciated in 1953 and reviewed in 1963 to detail the manner in which the forest and tree resources would be managed sustainably to meet the needs and desires of the society and the nation. Over the past three decades the perspectives on the role of the forest for the society have changed and broadened considerably as a consequence of social, economic, environmental, cultural and political changes. On the other hand, there have been relentless pressures on the forest resources arising from the ever increasing demand for fuelwood, fodder, timber and demand of forest land for other uses.
