This report documents climate vulnerability assessments that were done in two villages in Tanzania, which is experiencing more climate variability and faces other threats linked to climate change.
The goal of the Pwani project, begun in 2010, is to maintain healthy coastal ecosystems and reduce the harmful effects of climate change impacts on coastal communities. The intention is to transfer and build on the lessons learned to other coastal villages in the project area.
The geographic focus on the island of Unguja in Zanzibar and the ecologically important northern coast of mainland Tanzania – Bagamoyo and Pangani Districts. It aims to help sustain the flow of environmental goods and services; revise the trend of environmental destruction of critical coastal habitats; and improve the wellbeing of coastal residents in the Bagamoyo- Pangani and Menai Bay Seascapes.
The project, in partnership with District government staff and a local NGO, met and worked with village leadership in the two locations to conduct village-level climate change vulnerability assessments and adaptation planning. The report outlines the full process that took place and the findings of the assessments. Each village was given a list of adaptation options. The report also issues recommendations for further assistance.
