Welcome to Tanzania CWMAC

The Community Wildlife Management Areas Consortium (CWMAC) is an umbrella organization for all Authorised Associations (AAs) that manage Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) in Tanzania. As such, CWMAC is a critical organization in the context of wildlife policy and governance in Tanzania. It plays an important role in representing community wildlife managers and their village-level constituents, giving these rural and often underrepresented groups a voice.

Mission

Our mission is to enable WMAs to have a unified voice and to work with AAs, investors and government to ensure rights are granted and communities can sustainably manage and accrue optimal benefits from their natural resources.

Core Purpose

Our core purpose is to enable strong Community Wildlife Management Areas that conserve natural resources and enhance community livelihoods.

Executional Challenges

Broad mandate
Advocacy approach
Financial stability
Human resources and capacity
Relationships

Under its Constitution, CWMAC is tasked with providing its members with a wide range of technical and financial services including capacity building, conflict resolution, marketing, policy advocacy, legal support, economic empowerment activities, fundraising, and contract negotiations with investors. The breadth of the organisation’s mandate is the most critical factor prohibiting CWMAC from achieving greater impact.

CWMAC acknowledges that even if it is successful in getting the proposed draft WMA Regulations (2015) amendments passed, these amendments will not increase WMAs revenue share sufficiently to make many more WMAs financially viable. As policy advocacy will continue to be a critical priority for CWMAC for some time, it needs to better communicate with government in order to influence positive change.

CWMAC is dependent on a single donor that from late 2017 will start phasing out its support over a two-year period. Constrained financial resources further limits CWMACs human resource capacity and ability to achieve a positive impact. There is therefore an urgent need for CWMAC to start expanding its donor base.

There are limited staff for effective execution of CWMAC's mission and mandate and more senior staff are needed in order for the organization to have sufficient resources to achieve its mission.

In order to increase its impact, CWMAC needs to strengthen its working relationship with constituent communities, AAs, local government, the private sector, collaborating partners, donors, and key national government institutions, in particular the respective departments within MNRT.
