Dr. Adelhelm Meru, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism of the United Republic of Tanzania participated in the 62nd CIC General Assembly in Pravets, Bulgaria in April 2015 and was an honored guest at the first ever official CIC State Members’ Meeting. The overwhelming success of this meeting of state representatives with the CIC leadership prompted the United Republic of Tanzania to subsequently send a declaration to CIC President Bernard Lozé, conveying the wish of the Minister and Government to reinstate the United Republic of Tanzania as CIC State Member.
The United Republic of Tanzania is rich in biodiversity and has about 44% of its territory under conservation. The constitution of the United Republic of Tanzania advocates the sustainable utilization of natural resources for present and future generations. Tanzania, one of the leading hunting destinations in Africa advocates well-regulated and sustainable hunting as an important tool for incentive driven conservation. The CIC State Member Platform is forum to exchange cutting edge scientific knowledge and practical experiences in legislation and enforcement.
