PARTICIPATORY AND AMBITIOUS NDC IMPLEMENTATION IN TANZANIA
PLAN TO RESTORE NEAR-NATURAL FOREST ECOSYSTEMS AND MITIGATE 300t of Co2
Variability in weather conditions such as intense rainfall events or dry spells will increase in the upcoming years. They pose serious risks for vulnerable communities and call for urgent action in order for them to adapt to these changes and become more climate resilient through nature-based solutions. However, to this date, forests provide over 85% of Tanzania’s energy supply driving cascading effects of deforestation fueled mainly by unsustainable practices in agriculture, livestock keeping and charcoal production. It is key to break the downward spiral of deforestation by identifying spaces for reforestation and facilitating sustainable natural resources. The PRO-NDC-ACT project will thereby will promote participatory NDC implementation in Tanzania.
