The objective of this project is to contribute to strengthening the capacity of the United Republic of Tanzania on the migration, environment and climate change nexus in order to develop evidence-based policies on climate change-induced internal migration.   The main outcome of the project will be that relevant ministries, policy makers and local government authorities in the United Republic of Tanzania are able to develop adaptation strategies thanks to increased knowledge and studies on the subject. The  project will partner with the Vice President's Office, the Division of Environment, and coordinate with other key stakeholders, namely the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism (MNRT), the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) and the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Human Settlements Developments. As one of its principal outputs, the project will include a research study examining the causes and consequences of the southward migration of cattle herders as a result of climate change in northern Tanzania. The results of the study will provide baseline information for evidence-based decision making related to migration, environment and climate change related challenges.
