Dodoma Tanzania

By using the farmer managed natural regeneration (FMNR) method and re-introducing rainwater harvesting practices, we aim to restore soils, re-green the area and improve the productivity of the land in central Tanzania. With our project we reach out to 300 communities in the Dodoma region, and thereby helping 900,000 people.

Re-greening with Tanzanian farmers

Dodoma is the heart of Tanzania and home to the capital. With a surface of  41,311 km2 it has almost the size of the Netherlands. The population is 2,083,588 (2012), of which 90% depends on land for livelihood. The land is used for small-scale agriculture and livestock keeping.

Although communities in the Dodoma region (a semi-arid area) have demonstrated an amazing resilience to harsh environment and severe climate, the complex problem of deforestation, land degradation and climate change has continued to accelerate at an alarming rate, thus destroying the capacity of ecosystems to sustain biodiversity and to provide natural resources of water, and fertile soils.

To improve peoples’ livelihoods and climate change resilience in the Dodoma region, as part of the ultimate goal of regreening Tanzania, we partnered up with LEAD Foundation. In 2017, the area for this program was selected and the design for the project has been made. It will be implemented first in the ditrict of Kongwa, in the eastern part of the Dodoma region. This has already started in December 2017. As of May 2018, the program will be introduced in the entire Dodoma region.

Together with our partners LEAD Foundation and MetaMeta and the local communities we have selected the interventions that will be implemented in the coming period. This program will consist of a combination of Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) and rainwater harvesting techniques.
