Information-processing has become increasingly visible and important in economic, social, and political life. One familiar piece of evidence is the statistical growth of occupations, media, institution and organizations specializing in information activities, with advanced tools for accessing the information.
So for this reason the community is deeply eager to access the information easily since the system of accessing information is globally simplified and they are aware of that e.g. the growing application of optic fibers. But some leaders still think that most of community members are uneducated hence they can’t need to access on environment information! I am alerting that the growth of Civil Society Organizations is much active on this and there is a great change to occur because most development goals are set for the human and his/her environment.
Being sincerely on this, there are still some barriers to environmental information thus result to unfair use of natural resources, poor accountability and a secrecy-poor running of Natural Resource Management. Especially by leadership and some Acts of the parliament e.g. Newspaper Act No. 3 of 1976 about having and spreading information made “secret” by the Government or some Authority. And at the same time the constitution of Tanzania promotes right to find, receive and to give information without any restriction.
Let there be transparency, togetherness for a vision of mass development in a safe sphere. Since we all need to protect, get to know anything about environment and still benefit it sustainably.
