Dar Es Salaam City Local Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan

Ilala Municipality is the central urban hub of Dar es Salaam City. It supports major trade, tourism,
fisheries, agriculture, business and transport activities. The vibrancy of this portion of Dar es
Salaam draws attention to the need for biodiversity and urban nature to support an increasingly
busy city centre and rapidly changing peri-urban areas. In a fast growing Municipality, we need to
protect the natural resources that people depend upon for their livelihoods and enhance the
natural assets that improve quality of life for people working and living in the city. Increasingly, the
world has recognised the impact of urbanisation on biodiversity and the unique role that local
and sub-national governments can play in activating local support for national and global
biodiversity goals. Ilala Municipal Council is proud to present the first Local Biodiversity Strategy
and Action Plan for Tanzania. We are inspired by the Ilala Biodiversity vision and focal areas and the
emphasis on supporting development needs. Implementation is now our imperative.
