Climate Change Adjustment Africa

Art in Tanzania is working with a consortium of NGOs and private sector actors to evaluate and produce solutions to the combination of climate change and human rights issues in rural Africa. Some 75% of Tanzanian people live in rural areas and their livelihood, based on agricultural income, will be highly affected by climate change. The vulnerable groups, such as women, youth, and people living with disabilities are most affected. This program is a multi-disciplinary student approach to evaluate the present situation, future scenarios and to develop models for possible solutions.
International Volunteers and Interns help us to perform advocative work in the schools and communities but many also conduct thesis and research tasks.
