The Tanzanian Adaptation Program

As part of the NCAP project, resilience and vulnerability in the Rufiji valley of Tanzania are assessed in relation to locally defined poverty indicators and are heavily determined by the availability and access to capital assets. As for existing adaptation routes, the strong message that comes from both the Rufiji and Kilimanjaro fieldwork is that access to work, usually in urban areas, is what keeps rural livelihood systems resilient. Under conditions of climate change, there is an urban solution to the problem of rural risk.

Participatory methods (such as PRA) were implemented, and a representative number of interviews and surveys were administered. Poverty indicators were developed.
