USAID Supports Locally-Managed Wildlife Areas in Tanzania

USAID partners with Tanzanians to improve biodiversity conservation by building sustainable livelihoods and supporting natural resource management. The strategy involves developing and implementing key national environmental policies, and supporting community based conservation. The Natural Resource Management Program takes a sustainable landscape scale approach which targets critical ecosystems. Key objectives of USG assistance are sustaining critical wildlife habitats, reversing land degradation, restoring watersheds, and improving community livelihoods through conservation enterprises. Activities also target sustainable agriculture and agroforestry, trade and private sector initiatives such as, tourism, honey and coffee. An innovative integrated water, sanitation and hygiene program supports market-driven services to improve health and increase economic resiliency. Within the climate change arena, the program supports a coordinated multi-donor effort on adaptation and landscape sustainability measures.
