National Environment Statistics Report, 2017 Tanzania Mainland
The National Environment Statistics Report, 2017 (NESR, 2017) is the first ever national comprehensive report on environment statistics in Tanzania. Publication of this report has shifted the paradigm of production of environment statistics in the country, from the conventional practice of researching on a single environment phenomenon to a multi and inter disciplinary approach encompassing various aspects of the environment.
NESR, 2017 provides a comprehensive picture of the environment situation of the country and it is an important instrument for policy integration and informed decision making. The NESR, 2017 covers a wide range of environment topics to facilitate one stop access and use of environment statistics for evidence-based decision making. It provides statistics for monitoring of national, regional and global development frameworks such as Tanzania Vision, 2025; the National Five - Year Development Plans; the East Africa Community Vision 2050; the Africa Development Agenda, 2063; the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015 – 2030, the Paris Climate Agreement 2015 and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, 2030 (SDGs, 2030).
