This study contributes to documenting some emergent community forest enterprises in Tanzania and their impacts on forest conservation and the livelihoods of local communities. The study does this by providing detailed case reviews of three different models of community forest enterprise involving sustainable timber, sustainable charcoal, and carbon offsets from natural forests (REDD+) carried out in different parts of the country. The three models have been developed and facilitated by entrepreneurial Tanzanian NGOs or social enterprises, working in close partnership with local communities, district governments, and other stakeholders.
