The Chololo Ecovillage partners are delighted to announce the signature of a major agreement with the European Union and Tz Ministry of Finance to launch a new 54 month climate change adaptation project.
The EcoAct (Ecovillage Adaptation to Climate Change in Central Tanzania) project will build on the successes of Chololo Ecovillage to increase the capacity of vulnerable semi-arid rural Tanzanian communities to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change and reduce poverty.
The new project will have three main Result Areas:
- To rollout the best practices from Chololo Eco-village to two wards and introduce new innovations based on vulnerability assessment;
- To strengthen the capacity of local government institutions in two districts on climate change adaptation strategies; and
- To establish an effective knowledge management system for learning and sharing nationally.
Many many thanks to all our supporters, partners and stakeholders who helped to make this happen.
Watch this space for updates as the project gets rolling.
