Private Forestry Programme II in Tanzania


Private Forestry Programme phase 2 is focusing geographically on Southern Highlands in Tanzania. It is a continuation of phase 1 (2014-2018) and it will concentrate on helping the poor people in the countryside to develop their income basis through forestry. The expected outcome is a socially sensitive, environmentally sustainable, financially profitable private forestry sector, including tree growers, small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) as well as their organizations and service providers. The first result area of the project aims to strengthen capacity in tree growing and private forestry organizations, and improve tree growers´ access to financing. The second result area aims to strengthen the capacity of SMEs and improved quality of products. The implementing agency in Tanzania is the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism. Finland's funding for the phase II is 9.4 million euros for the period 2019-2022.
