Resilient Agro - Landscapes to Climate Change in Tanzania (ReACCT)aims at assessing the regional impacts of climate change on agriculture and environment in Tanzania (Morogoro) and at designing adaptation strategies and practices for small-scale agriculture and land use
ReACCT aimed at assessing the regional impacts of climate change on agriculture and environment in Tanzania (Morogoro region) and at designing adaptation strategies and practices for small-scale agriculture and land use (agriculture, forest, hydrology, biodiversity, fishing and transport). The widespread application of these adaptation strategies and practices was expected to result in resilient “agro-landscapes” and livelihood systems with improved adaptive capacity to climate change. In order to reach these goals, the project was built on 3 major analytical thrusts:
Improving the description and understanding of inter annual climate variability, likely long term climate change in the region and their impacts on current land use systems and respective environmental, social and economic pressures.
Assessing smallholder constraints and opportunities with regard to potential climate change impacts on agriculture and ecosystem services.
Developing, testing, and monitoring a range of technologies and good practices for improving the overall adaptive capacity of rural households, communities, and agro-landscapes. This task was based on the results from data driven model estimates and stakeholder driven agro - landscape and livelihood scenarios.
