Strengthening Environmental Audit in Tanzania

October 16, 2023

The Environment Impact Assessment and Audit Regulations, 2005 of Tanzania detail the need to conduct environmental audits and self-regulation as provided for under the Environmental Management Act.

The Regulations cover various aspects such as qualifications of auditors and content of audit reports and lay down the process for review of audit reports and a system of checks and balances by setting procedures in place.

To understand the quality of reporting and whether reports reflect the intention mentioned in the Regulations, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) reviewed audit reports from different sectors in Tanzania. It recommends detailed structure for the reports, strengthening self-audit manuals and a committee of experts to review the reports. This technical manual includes procedures for conducting environmental audits and review of reports.
