Abstract

More specifically, the focus of the study was an assessment of environmental interventions by local government authorities on the quality of environment conservation in three selected councils of Dodoma Region. The study highlights some of conservation challenges, quality strategies and interventions that could be enhanced for sustainable eco-development. The study area has one of the most degraded environments in Tanzania. The statement of the problem is that, while progress has been made to a certain level on environmental conservations programme, this change in terms of quality has not been investigated and assessed. A case study design was adopted in which a population of 629 respondents was involved. In this Study the population was used as sample hence Census technique, not sampling. Distribution of respondents for data collection was in four groups and divided into two categories which included intervention designers 215 and intervention implementers 414. Data analysis by using SPSS and descriptive statistics were used to meet the case. Major findings include; poor use of natural resources, lack of adequate knowledge and knowledge dissemination, financial constraints and conflict of interest among stakeholders. Therefore, it is recommended that, ongoing interventions to environmental conservation should be refined and strengthened for quality and sustainable way.
