Swedish Support to the National Environment Management Council in Tanzania, 1986-1999
Tanzania established the National Environment Management Council (NEMC) in 1983 as high-level advisory body. The Government of Sweden, through Sida, has been the main bi-lateral partner with the NEMC since 1986. The annual Swedish contribution has been approximately 5 million SEK for general institutional support and technical advisors. NEMC´s objectives and activities are largely within its 1983 legal mandate. A review of environmental institutionss nearing completion should clarify the position and functions of NEMC relative to other agencies such as the Department of Environment.
