The economy of Tanzania is largely dependent on the climate sensitive sectors of agriculture, water and forestry, which employ a significant percentage of the population. These sectors are also a major contributor to national GDP.

Tanzania has made significant progress in defining the country’s policies and strategies to deal with climate change. However, the implementation of these plans and, more importantly, how the plans will be financed, is less clear.

This study was conducted between October 2013 and November 2014. The fieldwork behind the study was concluded in July 2014, and thus every attempt has been made to ensure the data referenced is factual up until this date.
