LEAT will take a lead role in ensuring the harmonization, effective implementation and enforcement of IPGs based policies governing the management of the Rukwa-Katavi Landscape at the national level. It will also collaborate with Landscape CSOs in enabling environment for proper management of IPGs and in advocating for implementation and enforcement of laws, regulations, polices and plans that would ensure ecosystem- based IPGs in the Landscape are well secured. LEAT’S key interventions will include the following: (i) Coordinate and facilitate policy advocacy activities geared towards harmonization of policies for the protection of ecosystem-based IPGs for the Rukwa-Katavi Landscape; (ii) Facilitate the establishment of partnerships and stakeholders forum or platform that will include representation from ministries, departments, Civil Society Organizations(CSOs), Local Government Authorities (LGAs), academic institutions, the private sector and central government’s institutions/agencies (such as NEMC, TANAPA). This mechanism will ensure participation, transparency and accountability in the implementation and enforcement of laws, regulations, and policies in managing environment and natural resources in the Landscape. (iii) Coordinate and facilitate critical engagements with government agencies whose mandates impinge on natural resources, NEMC, the Lake Rukwa-Basin Authority, and TANAPA and appraise them with policy and legal gaps, incoherencies, and conflicts that prevent sustainable management of the Landscape and enlist their support for the harmonization of those laws and policies.
