Résumé partiel
There is a high demand for indigenous chicken in Tanzania because of the widely held belief that indigenous chicken is healthier than exotic chicken. Even when they are sick, they are given medicine even a few days before being slaughtered for the market. Because of this perception in Tanzania, the potential for the indigenous poultry industry remains largely untapped. s

Since 1989, Kilimanjaro and the other regions have been facing significant risks from climate change, with a rise in mean temperature, a decrease in annual precipitation, and the rainfall pattern increasingly becoming unimodal. The people in these regions face the risk of a decline in crop production and its associated negative consequences. Therefore, a coping strategy is needed to mitigate climate change for the people in these regions. The chosen coping strategy should meet the following criteria : it must not require massive capital so that everybody in the regions can get onboard. It must be simple, immune from the risk of climate change, and must not necessarily be new. I chose indigenous poultry keeping as a coping strategy because it meets the criteria and the huge demand for indigenous chicken in Tanzania.
