HoweverTanzania is one of 20 African countries that implemented AAP.The  country participated in order to strengthen the abilities to deliver a development agenda that makes steady and secure progress towards the climate change adaptation.

AAP objective has been thus to enhance the adaptive capacity of Tanzania, promote early adaptation action and lay the foundations for long-term investment to increase resilience to climate change in the country
