TNRF is a collective civil society-based initiative to improve natural resource management and conservation in Tanzania by addressing fundamental issues of governance. We view the quality and equity of governance as fundamentally determining how natural resources are managed and how they support the livelihoods of Tanzanians and the sustainable economic development of the country.
As a consultant in the year 2007, I developed, designed, and still maintain this web site which aims at collecting a wealth of information about natural resources in Tanzania and more generally in Africa.
Drupal (version 5) has been chosen with the addition of some standard modules and the development of new ones. The library contains thousand of entries and is powered by the Bibliography module. Other functionalities follow:
- Integration of the Node profile module to describe the users such as the secretariat, the steering committee, or the members.
- Use of the Calendar module and the Event module to display the events and the whereabouts of the staff and the steering committee.
- Integration of the Organic group module to set up space for the different focus groups of the organization such as the Forestry group and the Rangelands and Livelihoods group.
- Restricted information is also made available through this portal for the members.
