The Climate Change, Agriculture and Poverty Alleviation (CCAP) initiative is a partnership between five civil society organisations with a commitment to improving accountability. These organizations namely; ActionAid Tanzania, Tanzania Organic Agriculture Movement, REDD, TFCG have extensive experience in agriculture working with grass-root networks of farmers (MVIWATA) and communities engaged in participatory forest management (MJUMITA). The initiative is an innovative partnership that will bridge the gap between NGOs more traditionally focused on forest conservation and those working on agricultural issues. The initiative aims to steer Tanzania towards an agricultural development pathway that achieves the dual goals of poverty reduction and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
The intended outcomes of the project are:
1. Small-scale farmers and other stakeholders are demanding the integration of climate smart, small-scale agriculture and sustainable land and natural resources management in national policy and policy implementation
2. Government, private sector and civil society are cooperating to support Small-scale farmers to benefit from climate smart agriculture and sustainable land and natural resources management.
