Description

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 (agriculture, forest, hydrology, biodiversity, fishing, transport etc.). The widespread application of these adaptation strategies and practices is expected to result in resilient “agro-landscapes” and livelihood systems with improved adaptive capacity to climate change.

1. 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.
