The communities we work with throughout Tanzania’s Zanzibar islands are innovating climate solutions that are increasingly needed by millions of people around the world. Together we are building new ways of living and working that restore ecosystems and create better food, water, and energy security for people.
Mangrove forests are crucial resources for maintaining the livelihoods of fishing communities. We are working with our team in Zanzibar to reforest these critical coast forests for climate resilience and livelihood opportunities.
Spice agroforestry promotes forest regeneration alongside the production of high-value spice crops, concurrently storing carbon and reversing trends of deforestation, soil depletion, and economic decline.
Communities in Zanzibar are now producing food directly outside of their homes. These intensive kitchen gardens provide families with an immediate source of nutritious crops for household consumption and to sell at markets.
Climate change impacts all of us, but not all of us equally. That’s why we design projects that specifically benefit women and work under a mandate to ensure that more than 50% of project beneficiaries in Zanzibar are women.
The communities we work with in Zanzibar are some of the most vulnerable in the world. Your support helps local communities adapt and prosper in a changing climate.
Our local team works to increase the adaptive capacity of at-risk communities in the Zanzibar Archipelago. Here's a look at what has been accomplished:
Improving the climate resilience of vulnerable communities
Increasing food security and promoting gender equality.
Spice production that is better for the farmers and the climate.
Restoring critical coastal mangrove ecosystems.
