The National Environment Management Council (NEMC) is a national environmental regulatory and enforcement institution responsible for controlling, managing and protecting environment in Tanzania. The enactment of Environmental Management Act No. 20 of 2004 (EMA, 2004) by Parliament in October 2004, repealed the National Environmental Management Act No.19 of 1983 and re-established NEMC. EMA 2004 provides for a legal and institutional framework for sustainable management of the environment, prevention and control pollution, waste management, environmental quality standards, public participation, environmental compliance and enforcement. Furthermore, it gives NEMC mandates to undertake enforcement, compliance , review and monitoring of environmental impacts assessments, research, facilitate public participation in environmental decision-making, raise environmental awareness and collect and disseminate environmental information. The purpose for which the Council was established is stipulated in Section 17(1) of EMA Cap.191 of 2004 and inter alia includes: to undertake enforcement, compliance, review and monitoring of environmental impact assessment, facilitation of public participation in environmental decision making, exercise general supervision and coordinate overall matters relating to the environment. Further Tanzania has ratified several of the Multilateral Environmental Agreements.
