The European Union Delegation to Tanzania (Dar es Salaam) is seeking proposals for its "Support to Non State Actors Programme – Environment Component" in the United Republic of Tanzania with financial assistance from the 10th European Development Fund.

The overall objective of the programme is to alleviate poverty of rural communities in Tanzania through the promotion of their role and involvement in the existing national natural resources management (Forests, Wildlife and Fisheries), legislation implementation and enforcement, and in line with the recently approved second National Strategies for Growth and Reduction of Poverty (MKUKUTA/MKUZA).

The specific objective is to empower communities as owner – managers of their natural resources (forests, fisheries and wildlife) through sustainable land use planning and participatory / community-based natural resources management activities (Participatory Forest Management, Wildlife Management Areas and Beach Management Units), as such increasing their resilience to external changes (including to climate change).
