Making REDD Work for Communities and Forest Conservation in Tanzania

The initiative known as Making REDD Work for Communities and Forest Conservation in Tanzania is implemented by the Tanzania Forest Conservation Group (TFCG) and the Tanzania Community Forest Conservation Network (MJUMITA). Its aim is to demonstrate how emissions from deforestation and forest degradation can be reduced through CFM (TFCG and MJUMITA 2009). While the initiative includes a suite of interventions at the community scale, it makes direct payments to individuals for the environmental services provided through reduced deforestation and forest degradation.
