Bunda Climate Resilience and Adaptation Project (Tanzania)


The Adaptation Fund was established to finance concrete adaptation projects and programmes in developing countries that are parties to the Kyoto Protocol and are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.

Titre : Bunda Climate Resilience and Adaptation Project (Tanzania)

Country : Tanzanie

Date approbation : 04/08/2021 Durée : 3 years

The Bunda district represents the section of poor rural communities of the Mara region in Tanzania. There are highly dependent on rain fed subsistence agriculture, and are vulnerable to land degradation and forest resources due to poor farming practices, unsustainable charcoal production and fuel wood harvesting, declining fish stock, illegal and primitive fishing practices and livestock grazing aggravate the impacts of climate change on the communities’ livelihood systems, amplifying communities’ vulnerability and limiting their adaptive capacity.

This project proposes to develop and implement concrete adaptation actions at grass root levels to increase community livelihood resilience to climate change effects and cover the following sectors : water resources and supply, agriculture, fisheries and aquaculture, livestock, forestry and ecosystems and gender in relation to climate change. The project applies transformative integrated environmental management and aquaculture innovations, resilient rural water supply systems and Ever-Green-Agricultural (EVA) practices to reduce vulnerabilities and the impact of climate change on local communities in the district. This approach offers practical and effective combination of Community-Based-Adaption and Ecosystem-Based-Adaptation techniques to support transformation of livelihood system, combat poverty, enhance greater climate resilience of rural communities and gender equality while reducing emissions through long-term storage of carbon in landscapes.

The anticipated impact of the project is to benefit 36,218 men and women.
