Tanzania and Norway have on the 02nd September 2015 signed an Agreement triggering a support of a Norwegian grant of up to 37 Million NOK over a 3-year period (2015-2018) for the establishment of a National Carbon Monitoring Centre (NCMC). The NCMC will be hosted at Sokoine University of Agriculture through a Memorandum of understanding with Vice Presidents Office.

The NCMC is the institution that will manage an effective national system of measuring, reporting and verification (MRV) of carbon in forest ecosystems for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the international community on behalf of the nation. While initial focus will be on Carbon emission reductions in the forestry Sector, in the longer term, the NCMC can be expanded to accommodate other sectors (such as agriculture, energy, transport, industries).
