<div class="horipane"><div class="title active">Description</div><div class="content"><table class="table"><tbody><tr><td class="fld"></td><td class="columns"><div class="less">In 2009, Norway and Tanzania presented a joint project proposal to the Royal Norwegian embassy, which was approved and a five year partnership project was launched in the same year. Lindi and Kilosa districts will be the two beneficiary areas; Lindi Rural District is in coastal Tanzania and includes parts of the Eastern African coastal forest biodiversity hotspot. Kilosa District is in the Eastern Arc Mountains, part of the Eastern Afromontane biodiversity hotspot. </div><a class="seemore" href="#">See more...</a><div class="more" style="display:none"> According to the project proponents, the aim of the project is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in Tanzania in ways that provide direct and equitable incentives to rural communities to conserve and manage forests sustainably. The point of conflict is that local people, depending on the district forest are being limited on the use of the land and forests resources. <br/><br/><a class="seeless" href="#">(See less)</a></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div class="horipane"><div class="title active">Basic Data</div><div class="content"><table class="table"><tbody><tr><td class="fld">Name</td><td>Kilosa and Lindi Pilot REDD projects, Tanzania</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Country</td><td><a href="/country/tanzania">Tanzania</a></td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Province</td><td>Morogoro</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Site</td><td>Kilosa and Lindi</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Accuracy of Location</td><td>HIGH local level</td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div class="horipane"><div class="title active">Source of Conflict</div><div class="content"><table class="table"><tbody><tr><td class="fld">Type of Conflict (1st level)</td><td>Biomass and Land Conflicts (Forests, Agriculture and Livestock Management)</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Type of Conflict (2nd level)</td><td>Land acquisition conflicts<br /> REDD/CDM</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Specific Commodities</td><td><a href='/commodity/carbon-offsets'>Carbon offsets</a><br /></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div class="horipane"><div class="title active">Project Details and Actors</div><div class="content"><table class="table"><tbody><tr><td class="fld">Project Details</td><td class="columns"><div class="less">This project will run for 5 years and phase out in August 2014. </div><a class="seemore" href="#">See more...</a><div class="more" style="display:none"> Financial frames of US$5,914,353. <br/><br/> hectares of Montane and Lowland Coastal/Miombo forest in the Eastern Arc Mountains and Coastal Forest biodiversity hotspot will be affected. <br/><br/> persons are living in 20 communities. <br/><br/><a class="seeless" href="#">(See less)</a></div></td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Project Area (in hectares)</td><td>50000</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Level of Investment (in USD)</td><td>5914353</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Type of Population</td><td>Rural</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Start Date</td><td>2009</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Company Names or State Enterprises</td><td><a href='/company/tanzania-forest-conservation-group'>Tanzania Forest Conservation Group</a> from <a href='/country-of-company/tanzania'><small>Tanzania</small></a> - <small> www.tfcg.org</small></td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Relevant government actors</td><td>Ministry of Environment and Agriculture</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">International and Financial Institutions</td><td><a href='/institution/norwegian-international-climate-and-forest-initiative'>Norwegian International Climate and Forest Initiative</a></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div class="horipane"><div class="title active">The Conflict and the Mobilization</div><div class="content"><table class="table"><tbody><tr><td class="fld">Intensity of Conflict (at highest level)</td><td>LATENT (no visible organising at the moment)</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">When did the mobilization begin</td><td>LATENT (no visible resistance)</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Groups Mobilizing</td><td>Farmers</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Forms of Mobilization</td><td>Creation of alternative reports/knowledge</td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div class="horipane"><div class="title active">Impacts</div><div class="content"><table class="table"><tbody><tr><td class="fld">Environmental Impacts</td><td><strong>Potential: </strong>Air pollution, Biodiversity loss (wildlife, agro-diversity)</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Socio-economic Impacts</td><td><strong>Visible: </strong>Displacement<br /><strong>Potential: </strong>Increase in Corruption/Co-optation of different actors, Lack of work security, labour absenteeism, firings, unemployment</td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div class="horipane"><div class="title active">Outcome</div><div class="content"><table class="table"><tbody><tr><td class="fld">Project Status</td><td>In operation</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Pathways for conflict outcome / response</td><td>Corruption</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Development of Alternatives</td><td>Reports and information sharing </td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Do you consider this as a success?</td><td>Not Sure</td></tr><tr><td class="fld">Why?
