General Overview of the Organization
The Tanzania Natural Resource Forum is a network organization registered in 2006 as a Non-Governmental Organization, with the aim of promoting the improvement of natural resource governance to achieve more sustainable rural livelihoods and better conservation outcomes. TNRF works for improved natural resources governance by helping to bridge the gap between:
People’s local natural resource management needs and practices, and
National natural resource management priorities, policies, laws and programs
TNRF seeks to support its members by improving communication, sharing information, promoting collaboration and strengthening collective action. TNRF has a growing membership of more than 3,800 people and organizations, supporting professional staff, and a steering committee drawn from the membership.
TNRF facilitates member-driven ‘Working Groups’ on key policy and practice issues that are of direct interest to members. These working groups are very collaborative and provide an opportunity for TNRF’s diverse membership to tackle concerns at a range of different levels. There are currently working groups engaged in TNRF’s three main thematic areas of forestry, wildlife and rangelands. TNRF communications works at a cross cutting level, producing for example a web-site, weekly e-news, policy briefs in collaboration with partners and participatory film or radio targeted at advocacy. TNRF also successfully engages with other stakeholders in establishing round tables for CSOs, donors, international NGOs and government to discuss emerging issues related to the environment.
TNRF is implementing the project name “Engaging Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and the private sector in developing advocacy agendas” to build on the successes of the first phase to influence improved wildlife conservation and tourism sector. Through this project, TNRF will strengthen advocacy approaches and supporting the piloting of the implementation of the new wildlife policies and regulations by engaging CSOs, local community institutions, private sector and the government.
In view of this, TNRF seeks to recruit a Project Coordinator with thorough understanding of Wildlife Sector in Tanzania to coordinate implementation of the project. The successful candidate will be responsible for management and coordination of all project activities.
