Tanzania has great treasure of unique resources for biodiversity and tourism including wildlife, natural forests, beaches, mountains, rivers and lakes. The country also has a tropical weather and a wealth of cultures. Most of these resources are found in protected areas and contribute to the tourism industry in terms of foreign exchange, which is more than 17 % of the GDP according to government figures, however, climate change threatens to undo positive development gains globally, and Tanzania is no exception.
UNDP in Tanzania is working to ensure that national and subnational government, local institutions, civil society organizations and the private sector have increased capacity to manage natural resources. Our projects promote efficient and sustainable ecosystem and biodiversity management including mining, improved infrastructure, and increase the energy access. Through our work, we support the strengthening of institutional capacity for environmental law enforcement provide equipment for Early Warning Systems for Climate Change Resilience and reduce conflict over scarce natural resources through the land use planning process, improve water governance through formation of water user’s associations.
