Mainstreaming Climate Change Adaptation through Small Grants Programme


The project aims at supporting implementation of early adaptation actions for local communities that are adversely affected by climate change impacts in selected areas of Tanzania. The project also focus on demonstrating successful community based climate change adaptation initiatives for people living in marginal areas. The project will provide support to approximately 10,000  people mostly farmers and pastoralists in Longido, lringa Rural and Bahi districts to cope with drought and water scarcity problems related to climate change effects.  The basic idea is to improve people's livelihoods through reducing vulnerabilities and increasing climate change resilience.

The project will be achieved by equipping the communities with knowledge and technologies, which are appropriate for combating impacts of climate change on agricultural productivity, food security, water availability and rangelands.
