Environmental Sustainability, Climate Change and Resilience
Climate change threatens to undo development gains globally and Tanzania is no exception to this. Especially vulnerable is the rural poor. Tanzania has great treasure of unique resources for biodiversity and tourism including wildlife, natural forests, beaches, mountains, rivers, lakes, tropical weather and a wealth of cultures. Most of these areas are found in protected areas and these contribute to the tourism industry, which is more than 17 % of the GDP, but climate change is threat to all of this
UNDP in Tanzania is working to ensure that national and subnational government, local bodies, civil society organizations and the private sector have increased capacity to manage natural resources. Our projects promote more efficient and sustainable agriculture and mining, improve infrastructure, and support the adoption of renewable or energy-efficient power. Through our work, we create sustainable jobs where they are most needed, improve disaster risk reduction, and reduce intercommunal conflict over scare natural resources.
