Capacity Building in the CLRC
Establishing the CLRC was cultivated by the fact that there are knowledge and awareness gaps on different discourses when discussing the impacts of climate change on livelihoods. This being the case, the idea is therefore to establish a portfolio of sustainability and livelihood resilience plans for government authorities and the local communities; This will include;
- Establish second-generation action plans for the climate resilient agriculture, Forestry & Environmental Studies, climate change and sustainable development.
- Contributing on rolling out action to the current plans and strategies for the local community responses to climate change impacts on key livelihood activities
- Develop research informed training modules for those who regularly face adverse impacts of climate change in their daily livelihood activities
- Continue to capacitate the general public to implement plans and strategies set to enable them cope with and adapt to the climate induced risks and adverse impact
- Create local and regional climate response alliances with vulnerable groups particularly small holder farmers, women, pastoralists, youth and the elderly, to identify, discuss, and implement new approaches that will help them reduce climate induced loss and damages
- Use research studies and findings to identify participants and establish regular communications with them in climate and livelihood matters.
- Partner with alliance participants to develop a vision and strategy for a resilient community.
- Host conferences led by CAN Tanzania to promote networking and knowledge exchange in collaboration with government authorities, development partners, local communities and the general public
