Good governance: key to local government in implementing REDD
Local Government Authorities (LGAs) are responsible for the provision of wide-ranging public services including environmental protection, forest conservation and development incentives, among others. But the key challenge for such incentives is governance. In 2010, having realized the potential role of LGAs and the key challenge in front, the research project titled “The role of local government in implementing REDD” was kick started. It aims to assess the current role of LAGs in relation to forest conservation and governance of “Reduced Emissions from Deforestations and Forest Degradation” (REDD) initiative in Tanzania. – Output from the Norwegian funded Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Mitigation (CCIAM) Programme in Tanzania.
