Project Summary:
Rangeland degradation in northern Tanzania, driven by climate and societal change, reduces threatened wildlife populations and threatens food security for pastoralist communities. Here, women are the biggest victims of climate change and land degradation but are also key agents of change. This project pilots an innovative, pastoralist-driven, rangeland restoration process, empowering 60 women to become catalysts of sustainable management in a wildlife-rich, but degrading, corridor within the Tarangire-Manyara ecosystem, restoring grazing opportunities for >10,000 adults and their families.
