Forests, Communities and Governance – The Mama Misitu Campaign is Launched!


The Mama Misitu Campaign was officially launched on July 31st in Dar es Salaam.   The launch was a success and brought together various stakeholders including the Regional Commissioner for the Coast, representatives from the Finnish and Norwegian Embassies, government institutions and Civil Society organizations.  One participant,  a farmer from Rufiji, spoke about  the importance of forests to local communities, and how Mama Misitu plays an important role in raising awareness. “Without taking ownership, villagers would not have seen the importance of protecting forests and trees.”
