GICD is an organization registered (00NGO/R/0252) under the Non-Governmental Organizations Act, 2002 operating in Tanzania mainland. Due to global climate change
which affects the livelihood all over the world, Tanzania being among the developing country has also suffered in various sectors including Agriculture, Health and
Natural Resources Management. The organization was formulated in October 2017, become fully registered in 2019 and is composed by professional graduates from various
field related to Education for Sustainability, Environment, Forestry, Water resources and Community Development. Founders were motivated to become agents for change
in promoting environmental conservation programs linked with local community development. Having realized and understand a gap that exists between ecology, society
and economy spheres in Tanzania, founders were determined to establish an organization that will bring together community to live within environmental limits while
ensuring sustainability utilization of environmental resources. The center’s core value is to employ environmental conservation approach towards contributing to the
achievement of Millennium development goals (MDG`s).
Despite the significant role played by environmental resources to Tanzania`s socio economic growth, increasing population growth and unsustainable utilization of natural resources has increased degradation and threatens availability of environmental resources services and their support to community livelihood. This has escalated poverty, basic living hardship particularly in rural area where they depend on naturally available resources. To address this problem, this Organization is formed in order to provide training and capacity building particularly to rural communities on sustainable environmental conservation and utilization. The organization will work closely with the local community, government authorities and other partners in order to conserve the environment and have a sustainable utilization of the available environmental resources for the present and future generation.
