National Capacity building on climate induced Loss and Damage, 27-29 June 2017, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania For release 27th June 2017

Tanzania is among the lower income Sub-Saharan countries and many others across the globe badly impacted by loss and damage resulted from climate change whilst it has affected also the national efforts towards sustainable development. This burden is projected to increase severely if no effective measures taken to address the challenge in question in a timely manner. Apart from the fundamental burdens of climate induced loss and damage in Tanzania, the level of knowledge among the public general and government officials is still low. Therefore CAN Tanzania decided to take further step of humankind in nature to address this issue by impacting knowledge to those stakeholders as a tool for behavioral changes and effective action. Climate Action Network Tanzania is hosting a workshop with due regard to the Climate induced loss and damage sponsored by Bread for the World aiming at building capacity and scaling up the roles of stakeholders from the grassroots in tackling climate change impacts whilst building community resilience. On the other hand, CAN Tanzania welcomed different stakeholders from different places within and outside the country including the facilitators from Germany who will champion this workshop like Sabine Minninger a Policy Advisor on climate change from Bread for the World, Thomas Hirsch from Climate Development Advice (CDA) and Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF). Furthermore, this training expected to yield the following results; build a common understanding on how to address loss and damage among the stakeholders, enhance the understanding of the distinction between economic and non-economic loss and damage, discussing possible action, raising capacities of stakeholders on climate risk financing options, building tools that can be used to address loss and damage at local contexts in alignment with national plans and strategies across levels and also equipping Tanzania stakeholders with the required skills and technical expertise useful to identify the interconnectedness between the available adaptation strategies on loss and damage in the country and across the East Africa Region.
