Arusha Tanzania

Regreening and improving the land of Maasai pastoralists and farmers


Joining regreening forces with partners and the Maasai

Arusha, the Northern region in Tanzania with many memorable safari parks, has one of the driest areas in the country: the Monduli district. As the Maasai are a dominant community in this area, livestock keeping is one of the main economic activities. However, pasture resources are not sufficient. The present farmer community also has difficulties with the productivity of their farms.

Time for a change! Therefore we boost the program of partners LEAD and Erbacher Foundation with communication power and regreening knowledge. The program aims at improving peoples’ livelihoods while regreening and cooling down the land. The methods that will be used are Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) and Pastoralist Managed Natural Regeneration (PMNR). These methods are fast, low cost and sustainable and will allow pastoralists and farmers inhabiting the most degraded landscapes to restore their pasture lands and farm soils. This will have a positive effect on water availability, soil health, crop yields and grass and fodder for livestock.
