The National Environment Policy in Tanzania encourages development that is sustainable, and that respects present and future needs for a healthy environment. Protection of the environment and rights requires a justice system that reacts to illegal violations.
In Tanzania, laws and policies do exist to ensure rights to a healthy environment, and access to courts to protect these rights. Enforcement, however, is lacking. And those most vulnerable are often left without the awareness and resources necessary for justice.
