Tanzania: National climate change strategy

This Strategy has been developed in response to the growing concern of the negative impacts of climate change and climate variability on the country’s social, economic and physical environment. Its overall aim is to enhance the technical, institutional and individual capacity of the country to address the impacts of climate change.

The Strategy covers adaptation, mitigation and cross-cutting interventions that will enable Tanzania the benefi t from the opportunities available to developing countries in their efforts to tackle climate change. These opportunities were recognized under the Copenhagen Accord, Cancun Agreement and Durban Platform for Enhanced Action, and they include technology transfer to developing countries under the proposed Technology Mechanism; opportunities offered by the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation Plus (REDD+) Mechanism; and fi nancing for both adaptation and mitigation activities under the proposed ‘Fast Start Climate Fund (of up to USD($) 30 billion in 2012), rising gradually to USD($) 100 billion annually by 2020 and last but not least, the Green Climate Fund, whose aim is to promote the paradigm shift towards low emission and climate resilient development pathways by providing support to developing countries to limit their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
